Abstract

In this paper, we use the parametric form of fuzzy numbers, and an iterative approach for obtaining approximate solution for a class of fuzzy nonlinear Fredholm integral equations of the second kind is proposed. This paper presents a method based on Newton-Cotes methods with positive coefficient. Then we obtain approximate solution of the fuzzy nonlinear integral equations by an iterative approach.
