Abstract

In this paper, we propose an iterative procedure based on two dimensional
fuzzy block-pulse functions for solving nonlinear fuzzy Fredholm integral
equations of the second kind. The error estimation and numerical stability
of the proposed method are given in terms of supplementary Lipschitz condition.
Finally, illustrative examples are included in order to demonstrate the accuracy
and convergence of the proposed method.
