Abstract : Limit process expansions applied to problems for partial differential equations are discussed. Three different types of non-uniformities, non-linear far field, non-linear local singularity, and singular boundary conditions are illustrated by example. The use of different limits to construct overlapping expansions is emphasized. Matching is sketched briefly.
