Non-Standard Difference Method for Numerical Solution of Linear Fredholm Integro-Differential Type Two-Point Boundary Value Problems


In this article we have considered Fredholm integro-differential equation type second-order boundary value problems and proposed a rational difference method for numerical solution of the problems. The composite trapezoidal quadrature and non-standard difference method are used to convert Fredholm integro-differential equation into a system of equations. The numerical results in experiment on some model problems show the simplicity and efficiency of the method. Numerical results showed that the proposed method is convergent and at least second-order of accurate.
