Abstract: The basic linear, Volterra integral equation of the first kind with a weakly singular kernel is solved via a Galerkin approximation. It is shown that the approximate solution is a sum with the first term being the solution of Abel's equation and the remaining terms computable as components of the solution of an initial-value problem. The method represents a significant decrease in the normal number of computations required to solve the integral equation.
