Solving volterra integral equation via nonlinear programming
Keywords:Volterra integral equations, Optimization, Non linear programming
In this paper we propose an approach to find approximate solution to the nonlinear Volterra integral equation of the second type through a nonlinear programming technique by firstly converting the integral equation into a least square cost function as an objective function for an unconstrained nonlinear programming problem which solved by a nonlinear programming technique (The preconditioned limited- memory quasi-Newton conjugates, gradient method) and as far as we read this is a new approach in the ways of solving the nonlinear Volterra integral equation. We use Maple 11 software as a tool for performing the suggested steps in solving the examples.
