Abstract: This paper is concerned with evaluation of integrals whose integrands are oscillatory and contain singularities at the endpoints of the interval of integration. A typical form is , where *a* and *b* can be finite or infinite, is a parameter which is usually large, is analytic in the range of integration, and the singularities are encompassed in the weight function . We suppose that can be expanded in series of polynomials which are orthogonal over the interval of integration with respect to . There are two such expansions for . One is an infinite series which follows from the usual orthogonality property. The other is a polynomial approximation plus a remainder. The relations between the coefficients in these representations are detailed and methods for the evaluation of these are analyzed. Error analyses are provided. A numerical example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the schemes developed.
