On spectral homotopy analysis method for solving linear Volterra and Fredholm integrodifferential equations. (English) Zbl 1259.65217

Summary: A modification of homotopy analysis method (HAM) known as spectral homotopy analysis method (SHAM) is proposed to solve linear Volterra integro-differential equations. Some examples are given in order to test the efficiency and the accuracy of the proposed method. The SHAM results show that the proposed approach is quite reasonable when compared to SHAM results and exact solutions.
