We consider an h-adaptive algorithm for the boundary element method applied to two integral equations of the first kind on polygons, namely Symm's integral equation and the hypersingular equation with the normal derivative of the double layer potential. Our reliable and operative algorithm is based on new a posteriori estimates for the boundary element Galerkin solution. Numerical experiments show the effectivity of the algorithm. © 1995 Springer-Verlag.
