Discrete superconvergence of collocation solutions for first-kind volterra integral equations
It is known that collocation solutions for firstkind Volterra integral equations based on (discontinuous or continuous) piecewise polynomials cannot exhibit local superconvergence at the points of a uniform mesh. In this paper we present a complete analysis of local superconvergence of such collocation solutions for first-kind Volterra integral equations at non-mesh points. In particular, we discuss (i) the existence of superconvergence points for prescribed collocation points; (ii) the existence of collocation points for prescribed superconvergence points. Numerous examples illustrate the theory. © 2012 Rocky Mountain Mathematics Consortium.
