A hypersingular integral equation in two disjoint intervals is solved by using the solution of Cauchy type singular integral equation in disjoint intervals. Also a direct function theoretic method is used to determine the solution of the same hypersingular integral equation in two disjoint intervals. Solutions by both the methods are in good agreement with… (More)
A direct function theoretic method is applied to solve a weakly singular integral equation whose kernel involves logarithmic singularity. This method avoids the occurrence of strong singularity. The solution of this integral equation is then applied to re-investigate the well known problem of water wave scattering by a partially immersed vertical barrier.
