In this paper, we will present a new approach for solving boundary integral equations with panel clustering. In contrast to all former versions of panel clustering, the computational and storage complexity of the algorithm scales linearly with respect to the number of degrees of freedom without any additional logarithmic factors. The idea is to develop alternative formulations of all classical boundary integral operators for the Laplace problem where the kernel function has a reduced singular behaviour. It turns out that the application of the panel-clustering method with variable approximation order preserves the asymptotic convergence rate of the discretisation and has significantly reduced complexity.
