In solving numerous problems in mathematics, mechanics, physics,
and technology one is faced with necessity of calculating different singular integrals. In analytical form calculation of singular integrals is possible only in unusual cases. Therefore approximate methods of singular integrals calculation are an active developing direction of computing in mathematics. This review is devoted to the optimal with respect to accuracy algorithms of the calculation of singular integrals with fixed singularity, Cauchy and Hilbert kernels, polysingular and many-dimensional singular integrals. The isolated section is devoted to the optimal with respect to accuracy algorithms of the calculation of the hypersingular integrals.
