Pointwise convergence of some boundary element methods. II. (English) Zbl 0648.65092
[For part I see ibid. 19, 65-87 (1985; Zbl 0579.65147.]
This paper deals with the approximate solution of strongly elliptic boundary integro-differential equations by the finite element Galerkin method. It is shown that for operators of positive order the discrete solutions converge uniformly with almost the same optimal order as is known for their convergence in the mean-square sense, yielding pointwise convergence estimates for the solutions of spline collocation boundary elements for two-dimensional problems.
