Abstract: The theory of a block-by-block method for solving Volterra integral equations is extended to nonsingular Volterra integro-differential equations. Convergence is proved and a rate of convergence is found. The convergence results obtained are analogous to those obtained by Weiss [12] for Volterra integral equations. Several numerical examples are included.
