Abstract: New error estimates for eigenvalues of symmetric integral equations are obtained. These estimates are applicable to a more general class of integration methods and, in many cases, are better than those of Wielandt. For every eigenvalue, a numerical solution for the corresponding eigenfunction is also obtained. Whenever the exact eigenvalue happens to be simple, an error estimate for the corresponding eigenfunction is also derived.
