The classical analytic solution of the dominant singular
integral equation ... is found by transforming the equation into a Riemann boundary
problem. (The above integral is interpreted as a Cauchy principal
This analytic solution is not very useful for numerical
work, since it requires the evaluation of a Cauchy principal value
integral of a function Z, which has, in general, algebraic logarithmic
singularities at ±1.
Three alternative solutions are found which avoid this
problem. These solutions are used as the basis of an algorithm for
the numerical solution of the above singular integral equation.
Convergence of this algorithm is proved, and four examples are
given, including the H equation of Chandrasekhar.
An algorithm and a computer program is also given for the
solution of the complete singular integral equation ... Two examples are given, including the numerical solution
of a singular integral equation arising in neutron transport theory.
