J. Comput. Nonlinear Dynam 11(4), 041027 (May 24, 2016) (8 pages) Paper No: CND-15-1073; doi: 10.1115/1.4033439 History: Received March 23, 2015; Revised April 11, 2016

In this paper, a Jacobi spectral Galerkin method is developed for nonlinear Volterra integral equations (VIEs) of the second kind. The spectral rate of convergence for the proposed method is established in the L-norm and the weighted L2-norm. Global superconvergence properties are discussed by iterated Galerkin methods. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
