Abstract: A quadrature rule is presented that is exact for integrands of the form $ \pi (\xi ) + \varpi (\xi )\log \xi $ on the interval (0, 1), where $ \pi $ and $ \varpi $ are polynomials. The computed weights and abscissae are given for one- through seven-point rules. In particular, the four-point rule is exact for integral operators with log-arithmically singular kernel on a cubic B-spline basis, and it is expected these results shall prove useful for numerical applications of weighted-residual finite element methods.
