Error Estimation for Approximate Solutions of Delay Volterra Integral Equations

  • Oktay DumanEmail author


This work is related to inequalities in the approximation theory. Mainly, we study numerical solutions of delay Volterra integral equations by using a collocation method based on sigmoidal function approximation. Error estimation and convergence analysis are provided. At the end of the paper we display numerical simulations verifying our results.
