Abstract

The superconvergence of the Sloan iterate obtained from a Galerkin method for the approximate solution of the singular integral equation based on the use of two sets of orthogonal polynomials is investigated. The discrete Sloan iterate using Gaussian quadrature to evaluate the integrals in the equation becomes the Nystr$\ddot{o}$m approximation obtained by the same rules. Consequently, it is impossible to expect the faster convergence of the Sloan iterate than the discrete Galerkin approximation in practice.
