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

findings.
