Singular source terms expressed as weighted summations of Dirac-delta functions are regularized through approximation theory with convolution operators. We consider the numerical solution of scalar and one-dimensional hyperbolic conservation laws with the singular source by spectral Chebyshev collocation methods. The regularization is obtained by convolution with a high-order compactly supported Dirac-delta approximation whose overall accuracy is controlled by the number of vanishing moments, degree of smoothness and length of the support (scaling parameter). An optimal scaling parameter that leads to a high-order accurate representation of the singular source at smooth parts and full convergence order away from the singularities in the spectral solution is derived. The accuracy of the regularization and the spectral solution is assessed by solving an advection and Burgers equation with smooth initial data. Numerical results illustrate the enhanced accuracy of the spectral method through the proposed regularization.
