Pocklington integral equation; numerical solutions; Haar wavelets
A simple and effective method based on Haar wavelets is proposed for the solution of Pocklington’s integral equation. The properties of Haar wavelets are first given. These wavelets are utilized to reduce the solution of Pocklington’s integral equation to the solution of algebraic equations. In order to save memory and computation time, we apply a threshold procedure to obtain sparse algebraic equations. Through numerical examples, performance of the present method is investigated concerning the convergence and the sparseness of resulted matrix equation.
