This paper extends results of Yamamoto et al. (Numer. Funct. Anal. Optimiz. 2008; 29:213-224) to the boundary value problem [image omitted] where the sign of r(x) is indefinite. Let HνAνUν= fν be the finite difference equations on partitions [image omitted], =1,2, with [image omitted] as , where Hν and A ν are diagonal and tridiagonal matrices, respectively, and f ν are vectors generated by discretization of f(x). Then equivalent conditions for the boundary value problem to have a unique solution u ∈ C2[a, b] are given in terms of [image omitted] and [image omitted].
