 The integral equations are computed numerically using a Bezier curve. We have written the  linear  Fredholm integral equation into a matrix formulation by using a Bezier curves as a piecewise polynomials of degree n and we use (n+1) unknown control points on unit interval to determine Bezier curve. two examples have been discussed in details.
