In this paper, An effective and simple numerical method is proposed for solving systems of integral equations using radial basis functions (RBFs). We present an algorithm based on interpolation by radial basis functions including multiquadratics (MQs), using Legendre-Gauss-Lobatto nodes and weights. Also a theorem is proved for convergence of the algorithm. Some numerical examples are presented and results are compared to the analytical solution and Triangular functions (TF), Delta basis functions (DFs), block-pulse functions , sinc fucntions, Adomian decomposition, computational, Haar wavelet and direct methods to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the proposed method.
