What is it about?
In this paper, we deal with the second-order accurate homogeneous (nonhybrid) type difference scheme for solving a singularly perturbed first-order Volterra integro-differential equation. It is shown that the method displays uniform convergence of O(N−2 ln N) on a special non-uniform mesh, where N is the mesh parameter. Numerical results are included to verify the theoretical estimates.

Why is it important?
An initial value problem for a singularly perturbed first-order Volterra integro-differential equation has been considered. For the numerical solution of this problem, we proposed a novel fitted second-order accurate difference scheme on the piecewise uniform mesh. The difference scheme is constructed by themethod of integral identities with the use of exponential basis functions and interpolating quadrature rules with the weight and remainder terms in integral form. It is shown that the method displays uniform convergence independently of the perturbation parameter in the discrete maximumnorm.We have implemented the presentmethod on two examples.Numerical results were carried out to show the efficiency and accuracy of the method.
