The a's and b's may be complex (with the b's not equal to zero), but the integral is assumed to be well defined, possibly as a Cauchy principal value. In particular the line segment with endpoints [a.sub.i], + [b.sub.i]x and [a.sub.i] + [b.sub.i]y is assumed to lie in the cut plane C\(-[infinity], 0) for 1 [less than or equal to] [less than or equal to] h.

Calculations were performed with the package MATHEMATICA, matrices D(x, y) and P(x, y) were computed symbolically, the approximate solutions of the boundary integral equations were obtained by means of cubic splines, and the Cauchy principal values were computed with Gaussian quadrature.
