Abstract: The present paper develops the theory of general Runge-Kutta methods for Volterra integral equations of the second kind. The order conditions are derived by using the theory of P-series, which for our problem reduces to the theory of V-series. These results are then applied to two special classes of Runge-Kutta methods introduced by Pouzet and by Beĺtyukov.
