Abstract

An essential ingredient for all adaptive boundary integral methods is a reliable estimate of the local error. This paper investigates an a posteriori error indicator based upon the evaluation of hypersingular equations. Computational experiments were performed for the two dimensional Laplace equation on interior and exterior domains, employing Dirichlet, Neumann, and mixed boundary conditions. The results indicate that the error indicator successfully tracks the form of the exact error curve. Moreover, a reasonable estimate of the magnitude of the error was also obtained.
