International Journal of Wavelets, Multiresolution and Information Processing, Ahead of Print. In this paper, a numerical approximation based on Legendre wavelets has been developed to solve nonlinear fractional Volterra–Fredholm integro-differential equations. Legendre wavelets are generated by dilation and translation of Legendre polynomials. The properties of the Legendre wavelets are presented in the paper. The proposed wavelet method transforms the integral equations to a system of nonlinear algebraic equations and this algebraic system has been solved numerically by Newton’s method. Convergence analysis of the proposed method has been discussed in this paper. Some examples have been illustrated to show the applicability and accuracy of the present method.
