Singular Integral


(1) A method of representing functions. A singular integral is an integral of the form

which, when certain conditions on ∫ are fulfilled, converges to its generating function f(x) as n → ∞. The function Kn is called the kernel of the singular integral. For example,


are the singular integrals of Dirichlet and Vallée Poussin, respectively. The systematic investigation of singular integrals was begun by H. Lebesgue in 1909. Singular integrals attracted attention in connection with the problem of representing and approximating functions of various classes by simpler functions, such as smooth functions and polynomials.

(2) An improper integral. [23–1231–]

In this paper, we propose that an alternative computational scheme by combining the new traction BIE and displacement BIE, that is, the displacement BIE, is collocated on the no-crack boundary, and the traction BIE only with the singular integral kernel in order of 1/r is collocated along the entire crack surface (no need for the separate discretization of the upper and lower crack surfaces).
