In this paper, the effectiveness of 2-Point Explicit Group (2-EG) iterative method with second-order composite closed Newton-Cotes (2-CCNC) quadrature scheme for solving second kind linear Fredholm integral equations is investigated. The formulation and implementation of the proposed method are presented. In addition, computational complexity analysis and numerical results of test examples are also included to verify the performance of the proposed method.
