# Wenjun Ying : A Fast Accurate Boundary Integral Method for the Laplace Equation

Boundary value and interface problems for the Laplace equation are often solved by boundary integral methods due to the reduction of dimensionality and its flexibility in domain geometry. However, there are two well-known computational issues with the boundary integral method: (a) evaluation of boundary integrals at points close to domain boundaries usually has low order accuracy; (b) the method typically yields dense coefficient matrices in the resulting discrete systems, which makes the matrix vector multiplication very expensive when the size of the system is very large. In this talk, I will describe a fast accurate boundary integral method for the Laplace boundary value and interface problems. The algorithm uses the high order accurate method proposed by (Beale and Lai 2001) for evaluation of the boundary integrals and applies the fast multipole method for the dense matrix vector multiplication. Numerical results demonstrating the efficiency and accuracy of the method will be presented.
