Abstract:

Solving interior scattering problems of electromagnetic waves in biological media using a volume integral equation approach gives rise naturally to an integral equation with unbounded coefficients and with strongly singular kernel. The numerical solution of an analogous 1-D integral equation of the second kind is studied and a convergence proof for the numerical solution is given.
