The topic of this paper is some types of singular behavior of spline approximation methods for one-dimensional singular integral operators which are caused by discontinuities in the coefficients or by non-smooth geometries of the underlying curves. These singularities can be cutted off by a modification of the approximation method which is closely related to the finite or infinite section method for discrete Toeplitz operators. Using Banach algebra techniques, one can derive stability criteria for a large variety of modified methods (including Galerkin, collocation, and qualocation.
