Abstract: In this paper a family of implicit multistep methods for the solution of Volterra integral equations is derived. These methods together with an explicit Euler predictor permit the use of a variable step size when solving integral equations. Means of controlling the error and stability by varying the step size and the order of the method are described. Extensive numerical results are presented.
