Collocation Method for Nonlinear Volterra-Fredholm Integral Equations


A fully discrete version of a piecewise polynomial collocation method based on new collocation points, is constructed to solve nonlinear Volterra-Fredholm integral equations. In this paper, we obtain existence and uniqueness results and analyze the convergence properties of the collocation method when used to approximate smooth solutions of Volterra- Fredholm integral equations.
