Abstract

In this paper, we present a computational method for solving boundary integral equations with loga-
rithmic singular kernels which occur as reformulations of a boundary value problem for the Laplacian equation. The
method is based on the use of the Galerkin method with CAS wavelets constructed on the unit interval as basis.
This approach utilizes the non-uniform Gauss-Legendre quadrature rule for approximating logarithm-like singular
integrals and so reduces the solution of boundary integral equations to the solution of linear systems of algebraic
equations. The properties of CAS wavelets are used to make the wavelet coe±cient matrices sparse, which eventually
leads to the sparsity of the coe±cient matrix of the obtained system. Finally, the validity and e±ciency of the new
technique are demonstrated through a numerical example.
