Abstract: We describe a modification of two-step collocation methods for the numerical solution of Volterra Integral Equations, with particular attention to the construction of efficient and highly stable methods. We present a constructive technique to obtain coefficient matrices having an estabilished structure, e.g. lower triangular or diagonal, and show examples of A-stable methods.
