Numerical methods based on boundary integral equations are powerful tools in a number of engineering applications, in particular in problems posed in unbounded domains. In recent years ground-breaking work has been done on high-frequency problems, on time-domain boundary integral equations, stochastic integral equations, etc. The resulting numerical methods are usually intrinsically highly accurate, but require deep analysis, refined algorithms, and the power of high performance computing to make them competitive in applications.
