MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.

Hierarchical quadrature for multidimensional singular integrals - part II

Peter Meszmer


In a previous part I, we introduced a method for the evaluation of singular integrals arising in the discretization of integral equations based on the repeated subdivision of domains. The integrals defined on these subdomains are classified such that a class of integrals can be expressed as a sum of regular integrals and representatives of other classes.

A system of equations describes the relations between the classes. Furthermore the approximate value of the singular integrals only depends on the accuracy of the calculation of regular integrals.

Part I left a gap on certain parameter configurations on which the mentioned system of equations is irregular. This paper shall close this gap. To this end, we introduce an alternative splitting strategy based on a modified Hadamard partie finie integral.
