Abstract: In this paper we consider the problem of computing 2-D Cauchy principal value integrals of the form

$\displaystyle {\fint_S}F({P_0};P)\,dP,\qquad {P_0} \in S,$

where S is either a rectangle or a triangle, and $ F({P_0};P)$ is integrable over S, except at the point $ {P_0}$ where it has a second-order pole. Using polar coordinates, the integral is first reduced to the form

$\displaystyle \int_{{\theta _1}}^{{\theta _2}} {[unk]_0^{R(\theta )}\frac{{f(r,\theta )}}{r}dr\, d \theta ,} $

where $ [unk]$ denotes the finite part of the (divergent) integral. Then ad hoc products of one-dimensional quadrature rules of Gaussian type are constructed, and corresponding convergence results derived. Some numerical tests are also presented.
