We analyze the boundary element Galerkin method for weakly singular and hypersingular integral equations of the rst kind on open surfaces. We show that the hp-version of the Galerkin method with geometrically reened meshes converges exponentially fast for both integral equations. The proof of this fast convergence is based on the special structure of the(More)
In a previous paper a preconditioning strategy based on overlapping domain decomposition was applied to the Galerkin approximation of elliptic partial differential equations on the sphere. In this paper the methods are extended to more general pseudodifferential equations on the sphere, using as before spherical radial basis functions for the approximation(More)
