Legendre Collocation Method for Volterra Integro-Differential Algebraic Equation

Yunxia Wei, Yanping Chen and Yunqing Huang


In this work we study the numerical solution to the Volterra integro-differential algebraic equation. Two numerical examples based on the Legendre collocation scheme are designed. It follows from the convergence proof and numerical experiments that the errors of the approximate solution and the errors of the approximate derivative of the solution decay exponentially.
