Abstract: A new class of quadrature rule methods for solving nonsingular Volterra integral equations of the first kind are introduced; these methods are based on an appropriate modification of the higher-order Newton-Gregory methods which are known to be divergent. Methods up to order six are constructed explicitly and illustrated with numerical examples.
