In this chapter, several topics will be discussed which illustrate the error analysis capabilities offered by the CVBEM. First, the CVBEM will be expanded into a finite series of products (complex logarithms with complex polynomials). This expansion of the CVBEM provides a direct link to the Analytic Function Method of van der Veer (1978). Next, an approximative boundary is developed for the CVBEM approximation function. This boundary is shown to provide a transformed domain upon which the approximation function is the exact solution to the boundary value problem.
