This article discusses an extrapolation method for solving a system of weakly singular nonlinear Volterra integral equations of the second kind. Based on a generalization of the discrete Gronwall inequality and Navot's quadrature rule, the modified trapeziform quadrature algorithm is presented. The iterative algorithm for solving the discrete system possesses a high accuracy order O(h 2+Î±). After the asymptotic expansion of errors is proved, we can obtain an approximation with a higher accuracy order using extrapolation. An a posteriori error estimation is provided. Some numerical results are presented to illustrate the efficiency of our methods.
