Abstract

In this paper, generalized difference methods(GDM) for one-dimensional viscoelastic problems are proposed and analyzed. The new initial values are given in the generalized difference scheme, so we obtain optimal error estimates in $L^p$ and $W^{1,p}(2\;{\leq}\;p\;{\leq}\;{\infty})$ as well as some superconvergence estimates in $W^{1,p}(2\;{\leq}\;p\;{\leq}\;{\infty})$ between the GDM solution and the generalized Ritz-Volterra projection of the exact solution.
