Abstract: In this paper the numerical solution of Fredholm integral equations of the second kind using an iterative method in which the solution is represented by a Chebyshev series is discussed. A description of a technique of Chebyshev reduction of the norm of the kernel for use in cases when the iterations converge slowly or not at all is also given. Finally, the application of the methods to other types of second-kind equations is considered.
