Summary:
We consider the second order initial value problem in a Hilbert space, which is a singular perturbation of a first order initial value problem. The difference of the solution and its singular limit is estimated in terms of the small parameter $\varepsilon .$ The coefficients are commuting self-adjoint operators and the estimates hold also for the semilinear problem.
