A semilinear second-order singularly perturbed parabolic equation in one space dimension is considered. For this equation, we give computable a posteriori error estimates in the maximum norm for a difference scheme that uses Backward-Euler in time and central differencing in space. Sharp L¹-norm bounds for the Green's function of the parabolic operator and its derivatives are derived that form the basis of the a posteriori error analysis. Numerical results are presented.
