Abstract

A numerical method for solving nonlinear Fredholm integrodifferential equations is proposed. The method is based on hybrid functions approximate. The properties of hybrid of block pulse functions and orthonormal Bernstein polynomials are presented and utilized to reduce the problem to the solution of nonlinear algebraic equations. Numerical examples are introduced to illustrate the effectiveness and simplicity of the present method.
