The main purpose of this paper is to propose the Legendre spectral-collocation method to solve the Volterra integral equations of the second kind with non-vanishing delay. We divide the definition domain into several subintervals according to the primary discontinuous points associated with the delay. In each subinterval, where the solution is smooth enough, we can apply Legendre spectral-collocation method to approximate the solution. The provided convergence analysis shows that the numerical errors decay exponentially. Numerical examples are presented to confirm this theoretical predict.

    In this paper, a nonlinear Volterra-Fredholm integral equation of the first kind is solved by using the homotopy analysis method (HAM). In this case, the first kind integral equation can be reduced to the second kind integral equation which can be solved by HAM. The approximate solution of this...
