This paper concerns collocation methods for integro-differential equations in which memory kernels have a singularity at t = 0. There has been extensive research in recent years on Volterra integral and integro-differential equations for physical systems with memory effects in which the stabilty and asymtotic stability of solutionsl have been the main interest. We will study a class of hereditary equations with singular kernels which interpolate between well known model equations as the order of singularity varies. We are also concerned with the smoothing effect of singular kernels, but we use energy methods and our results involve fractional time in fixed spatial norms. Galerkin methods for our models was studied and existence, uniqueness and stability results was obtained in . Our major goal is to study collocation methods.
