Potential theory is one of the ways to solve the boundary value problems for the Laplacian. Well-posed solvability of integral equations equivalent to boundary value problems allow to use for their solution well known projection methods. In many applied problems the boundary surfaces have complex geometry and contain the edges and corner points. Together with the singularity in the kernel this gives rise to a singularity in the searched density of the potential. The methods are proposed for removal of singularities in the kernels and unknown densities of potentials that significantly improve the accuracy of projection methods, as well as their numerical solution.
