On convergence of the polynomial collocation method for singular integral equations and periodic pseudodifferential equations
(Lobachevskii Journal of Mathematics, Volume VII)
We prove the convergence of polynomial collocation method for periodic singular integral, pseudodifferential and the systems of pseudodifferential equations in Sobolev spaces Hs via the equivalence between the collocation and modified Galerkin methods. The boundness of the Lagrange interpolation operator in this spaces when s>1/2 allows to obtain the optimal error estimate for the approximate solution i.e. it has the same rate as the best approximation of the exact solution by the polynomials.
