We determine the asymptotic order of decay of eigenvalues of weakly singular integral operators. The singularities are of quite general form, containing power and logarithmic terms. We give a unified elementary proof of all known results in this area. Our approach applies also in the case where the power order of the singularity is equal to the dimension of the domain and the logarithmic order is less than — 1. This case has not been considered previously. Furthermore, we show the optimality of the upper estimates
in a rather strong sense. In particular, we give a partial positive answer to the conjecture of [3].
