Abstract: We consider Galerkin methods for monotone Abel-Volterra integral equations of the second kind on the half-line. The theory follows from Kolodner's theory of monotone Hammerstein, equations. We derive the theory from the theory by relating the - and -spectra of operators of the form to one another. Here denotes convolution, and and . As an extra condition we need , with . We also prove the discrete analogue. In particular, we verify that the Galerkin matrix satisfies the "discrete" conditions.
