#### Abstract

We continue the study of algebras generated by the Cauchy singular integral operator and integral operators with fixed singularities on the unit interval, started in R.Duduchava, E.Shargorodsky, 1990. Such algebras emerge when one considers singular integral operators with complex conjugation on curves with cusps. As one of possible applications of the obtained results we find an explicit formula for the local norms of the Cauchy singular integral operator on the Lebesgue spaceL2(Γ, ρ), where Γ is a curve with cusps of arbitrary order and ρ is a power weight. For curves with angles and cusps of order 1 the formula was already known (see R.Avedanio, N.Krupnik, 1988 and R.Duduchava, N.Krupnik, 1995).
