Numerical Solutions of Fredholm Integral Equations Using Bernstein Polynomials
Keywords:Fredholm Integral Equation, Galerkin Method, Bernstein Polynomials.
In this paper, Bernstein piecewise polynomials are used to solve the integral equations numerically. A matrix formulation is given for a non-singular linear Fredholm Integral Equation by the technique of Galerkin method. In the Galerkin method, the Bernstein polynomials are used as the approximation of basis functions. Examples are considered to verify the effectiveness of the proposed derivations, and the numerical solutions guarantee the desired accuracy.
Keywords: Fredholm integral equation; Galerkin method; Bernstein polynomials.
