Abstract: We propose a scheme for solving singular integral equations based on a "hyperbolic tangent" quadrature rule. The integral equation is reduced to a system of linear equations, after quadrature and collocation. The matrix of the system is shown to be nonsingular for every choice of the number of quadrature nodes by producing a lower bound for its determinant.
