Abstract

In this paper we present and analyze Chebyshev and Legendre pseudo-spectral methods for the second kind Volterra integral equations with weakly singular kernel (Formula presented.). The proposed methods are based on the Gauss-type quadrature formula for approximating the integral operators involved in the equations. The present work is an extension of the earlier proposed spectral Jacobi–Galerkin method for the second kind Volterra integral equations with regular kernels (Xie et al. in J Sci Comput 53(2):414–434, [21]). A detailed convergence analysis is carried out, and several error estimates in (Formula presented.) and (Formula presented.) norms are obtained. Numerical examples are considered to verify the theoretical predictions.
