Uniform methods based on the use of the Galerkin method and different Chebyshev expansion sets are developed for the numerical solution of linear integrodifferential equations of the first order. These methods take a total solution time 0(N2lnN) using N expansion functions, and also provide error extimates which are cheap to compute. These methods solve both singular and regular integro-differential equations. The methods are also used in solving differential equations.
