One particular strength of the boundary element method is that it allows for a high-order
pointwise approximation of the solution of the related partial differential equation via the
representation formula. However, the high-order convergence and hence accuracy
usually suffers from singularities of the Cauchy data. We propose two adaptive
mesh-refining algorithms and prove their quasi-optimal convergence behavior with
respect to the point error in the representation formula. Numerical examples for the
weakly-singular integral equations for the 2D and 3D Laplacian underline our theoretical
adaptive boundary element method, optimal convergence rates, point error, goal-oriented algorithm.
