1. Introduction

The current research intends to the Adomian decomposition method for solving Volterra-Fredholm integral equation using Maple18.

Integral equations are the basic sciences in our real life, and they explain physical, chemical, engineering, and medical phenomena, and more than that, they contribute greatly to reaching analytical and numerical solutions to these phenomena in various areas of our lives [1] [2]. There are several studies of Adomian decomposition metod, convergence and accuracy of Adomian’s decomposition method for the solution of Lorenz equationsis studied in [3]. Solving Riccati differential equation using Adomian’s decomposition method is given in [4]. An adaptation of Adomian decomposition for numeric-analytic integration of strongly nonlinear and chaotic oscillatorsis studied in [5]. The extended Adomian decomposition method for fourth order boundary value problems is given in [6]. The use of the Adomian decomposition method for solving multipoint boundary value problems is mentioned in [7]. [8] developed a new algorithm for evaluating Adomian polynomials. [9] studied an efficient algorithm for the multivariable Adomian polynomials. [10] found convenient analytic recurrence algorithms for the Adomian polynomials. A review of the Adomian decomposition method and its applications to fractional differential equations is given in [11]. [12] covers a bibliography of the theory and applications of the Adomian decomposition method. We find that solutions of nonlinear integral equations are more difficult to solve than linear integral equations and there are many analytical and numerical methods for solving linear and nonlinear integral equations mentioned in the references [13] [14] [15] [16]. We discuss the numerical solution of the integral Volterra equation of the second type using an implicit trapezoidal [17] [18]. The Adomian decomposition method of the Fredholm integral equation of the second kind using MATLAB and Maple is demonstrated in [19]. The Adomian decomposition method was applied to solve the Fredholm integral equation of the second kind [20]. Also, Modified analysis method for solving the Volterra integral equation of the second kind using Maple is discussed in [21].

In this article we have applied the Adomian decomposition method used by using the Maple algorithm by applying this algorithm to different examples, including finding the approximate solution and then comparing it to the exact solution and finding out the amount of error between the approximate solution and the exact solution.

The main objective of this work is to use the Adomian decomposition method in solving the Volterra-Fredholm integral equation of the second kind using Maple18.

The paper is arranged as follows: In Section 2, the Adomian decomposition 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.

To clarify the basic idea of this method, we consider the following general non-linear differential equation:

$u\left(x\right)=f\left(x\right)+{\lambda }_{1}{\int }_{a}^{x}{K}_{1}\left(x,t\right)u\left(t\right)\text{d}t+{\lambda }_{2}{\int }_{a}^{b}{K}_{2}\left(x,t\right)u\left(t\right)\text{d}t.$ (1)

where L is assumed invertible and ${L}^{-1}$ is an inverse operator.

The standard Adomian method defines the solution $u\left(x\right)$ by the series

$u\left(x\right)={\sum }_{n=0}^{\infty }{u}_{n}\left(x\right)$. (2)

The modified decomposition method

${u}_{0}\left(x\right)=f\left(x\right)$ (3)

${u}_{1}\left(x\right)=f\left(x\right)+{L}^{-1}\left({\lambda }_{1}{\int }_{a}^{x}{K}_{1}\left(x,t\right){u}_{0}\left(t\right)\text{d}t\right)+{L}^{-1}\left({\lambda }_{2}{\int }_{a}^{b}{K}_{2}\left(x,t\right){u}_{0}\left(t\right)\text{d}t\right),$ (4)

${u}_{n+1}\left(x\right)={L}^{-1}\left({\lambda }_{1}{\int }_{a}^{x}{K}_{1}\left(x,t\right){u}_{n}\left(t\right)\text{d}t\right)+{L}^{-1}\left({\lambda }_{2}{\int }_{a}^{b}{K}_{2}\left(x,t\right){u}_{n}\left(t\right)\text{d}t\right)\text{.}$ (5)

The use of a modified decomposition method not only reduces the calculations but avoids the use of the human polynomial arrangement of boundaries in such cases.
