This paper presents a method of regularization for the numerical calculation of singular integrals used in different formulations of Boundary Element Method. The singular integrals arise when elements of order higher than zero are used for discretization. Very often in the Diffusive Optical Tomography for infant head modeling, triangular or square curvilinear boundary elements of the second order are used hence, our interest in the subject of effective and accurate calculation of singular… Expand

Solving Boundary Integral Problems with BEM++
BEM++ is a novel open-source library for the solution of boundary integral equations for Laplace, Helmholtz and Maxwell problems in three space dimensions and is a C++ library with Python bindings for all important features, making it possible to integrate the library into other C++ projects or to use it directly via Python scripts.
