We consider the Sturm-Liouville operator L(y) = −d2y/dx2 + q(x)y in the space L2[0, π], where the potential q(x) is a complex-valued distribution of the first order of singularity; namely, q(x) = ut’(x), where u ∈ L2[0, π]. (The derivative is understood in the sense of distributions.) We study the uniform equiconvergence on the entire interval [0, π] of the expansions of a function f ∈ L2 in the system of eigenfunctions and associated functions of the operator L with the Fourier trigonometric series expansion. We also estimate the equiconvergence rate.
