The main objective of this work is to use the successive approximations method in solving the nonlinear Fredholm integral equation of the second kind using Maple18.

The paper is arranged as follows: In Section 2, the successive approximations method. In Section 3, numerical examples are also considered to show the ability of the proposed method, and the conclusion is drawn in Section 4.

2. The Successive Approximation Method

The nonlinear Fredholm integral equation of the second kind

$u\left(x\right)=f\left(x\right)+\lambda {\displaystyle {\int}_{a}^{b}K\left(x,t\right)F\left(u\left(t\right)\right)\text{d}t}$ (1)

where $u\left(x\right)$ is the unknown function to be determined, $K\left(x,t\right)$ is the kernel, $F\left(u\left(t\right)\right)$ is a nonlinear function of $u\left(t\right)$ , and $\lambda $ is a parameter. ${u}_{0}\left(x\right)$ = any selective real valued function,

${u}_{n+1}\left(x\right)=f\left(x\right)+\lambda {\displaystyle {\int}_{a}^{b}K\left(x,t\right){u}_{n}\left(t\right)\text{d}t},\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}n\ge 0.$ (2)

The question of convergence of ${u}_{n}\left(x\right)$ is justified by noting the following theorem

Theorem 1 see [16] If $f\left(x\right)$ in (1) is continuous for the interval $a\le x\le b$ and the kernel $K\left(x,t\right)$ is also continuous in the triangle $a\le x\le b$ , $a\le t\le b$ the sequence of successive approximations ${u}_{n}\left(x\right),n\ge 0$ converges to the solution $u\left(x\right)$ of the integral equation under discussion.

4. Conclusion

In the paper, a successive approximations method is presented for solving the nonlinear Fredholm integral equation of the second kind using Maple18. The benefit of our method lies in the fact that, for some nonlinear problems, our method is still convergent as illustrated by figures and tables showing match the right accuracy, which shows the exact solution with the approximate solution is largely identical and noticeable Tables 1-7 represent the exact and numerical results of the examples in this article. Figures 1-7 readily show the comparison of exact solution and approximate solution. We can see from the figures that the approximate solution is very applicable to the exact solution and application is displayed through some examples. Numerical results show that the accuracy of the solutions obtained is good.
