Abstract : Many integral equations arising in electric and magnetic field problems have Green's function kernels, which cause difficulty in integration because of their essential singularities. By performing a simple coordinate rotation, these singularities can be shifted entirely onto one coordinate axis, so that iterated weighted numerical quadratures may be applied to evaluate exactly the projective representation of such integral operators on suitable finite-dimensional function spaces. Standard projective methods may therefore be applied to solve such integral equations accurately with very little computational effort. (Author)
