Abstract: The construction of a (global) approximate solution for a given generalized Abel integral equation may be viewed as a problem of (implicit) interpolation in a prescribed linear space. In this paper, piecewise polynomials (extended spline functions) of a given degree and of class *C* are used to generate such an approximating function. Results on convergence and error bounds are given, and the practical application of this method is illustrated by a numerical example.
