A Taylor collocation method for the solution of linear integro-differential equations
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, a matrix method called the Taylor collocation method is presented for numerically solving the linear integro-differential equations by a truncated Taylor series. Using the Taylor collocation points, this method transforms the integro-differential equation to a matrix equation which corresponds to a system of linear algebraic equations with unknown Taylor coefficients. Also the method can be used for linear differential and integral equations. To illustrate the method, it is applied to certain linear differential, integral, and integro-differential equations and the results are compared.
