About the Authors
  • This is the first comprehensive introduction to collocation methods for the numerical solution of initial-value problems for ordinary differential equations, Volterra integral and integro-differential equations, and various classes of more general functional equations. It guides the reader from the "basics" to the current state-of-the-art level of the field, describes important problems and directions for future research, and highlights methods. The analysis includes numerous exercises and applications to the modelling of physical and biological phenomena.

    • The first systematic and comprehensive introduction to collocation methods for functional differential and integral equations
    • Contains enough relevant theory to be useful to those new to the subject, leading them to the latest research
    • Contains worked examples, exercises and historical notes surveying over 1300 titles from the literature

    Reviews & endorsements

    "[T]his book gives a rather comprehensive treatment of collocation methods and its application to a wide class of functional equations. Even though it is centred on the use of collocation, this book also provides an introductory survey on theoretical and practical problems related to several kinds of Volterra Functional Equations and their numerical integration. The clarity of the exposition, the completeness in the presentation of stated and proved theorems, and the inclusion of a long list of exercises and open problems, along with a wide and exhaustive annotated bibliography, make this monograph a useful and valuable reference book for a wide range of scientists and engineers. In particular, it can be recommended to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics and may also serve as a source of topics for M.Sc. and Ph.D. theses in this field."
    Journal of Integral Equations and Applications

    "The book gives a state-of-the-art view of the numerical solution of Volterra equations and opens a rich source of unsolved problems for future research."
    Mathematical Reviews, G.A. Evans

    "The book under review, written by one of the leading experts in this area, is on the one hand focused on a seemingly narrow part of this subject, namely methods of collocation type. On the other hand, it shows an enormous broadness because it covers not only the usual simple problems (such as equations with continuous or even smooth kernels) but also equations with weakly singular kernels, various forms of delay equations, integro-differential equations, integral-algebraic equations and equations with singular perturbations. All these items are discussed in a thorough and very detailed fashion, including a review of the analytical aspects that are relevant for the numerical work, thus turning the monograph into a highly valuable resource for any researcher in the area."
