Abstract: If the solution of an integral equation can be expanded in the form of a Chebyshev series, the equation can be transformed into an infinite set of algebraic equations in which the unknowns are the coefficients of the Chebyshev series. The algebraic equations are solved by standard iterative procedures, in which it is not necessary to determine beforehand how many coefficients are significant. The method is applicable to equations of either Fredholm or Volterra types.
