This classic work is now available in an unabridged paperback edition. Hochstatdt's concise treatment of integral equations represents the best compromise between the detailed classical approach and the faster functional analytic approach, while developing the most desirable features of each. The seven chapters present an introduction to integral equations, elementary techniques, the theory of compact operators, applications to boundary value problems in more than dimension, a complete treatment of numerous transform techniques, a development of the classical Fredholm technique, and application of the Schauder fixed point theorem to nonlinear equations.

This book combines theory, applications, and numerical methods, and covers each of these fields with the same weight. In order to make the book accessible to mathematicians, physicists, and engineers alike, the author has made it as self-contained as possible, requiring only a solid foundation in differential and integral calculus. The functional analysis which is necessary for an adequate treatment of the theory and the numerical solution of integral equations is developed within the book itself. Problems are included at the end of each chapter. For this third edition in order to make the introduction to the basic functional analytic tools more complete the Hahn–Banach extension theorem and the Banach open mapping theorem are now included in the text. The treatment of boundary value problems in potential theory has been extended by a more complete discussion of integral equations of the first kind in the classical Holder space setting and of both integral equations of the first and second kind in the contemporary Sobolev space setting. In the numerical solution part of the book, the author included a new collocation method for two-dimensional hypersingular boundary integral equations and a collocation method for the three-dimensional Lippmann-Schwinger equation. The final chapter of the book on inverse boundary value problems for the Laplace equation has been largely rewritten with special attention to the trilogy of decomposition, iterative and sampling methods Reviews of earlier editions: "This book is an excellent introductory text for students, scientists, and engineers who want to learn the basic theory of linear integral equations and their numerical solution." (Math. Reviews, 2000) "This is a good introductory text book on linear integral equations. It contains almost all the topics necessary for a student. The presentation of the subject matter is lucid, clear and in the proper modern framework without being too abstract." (ZbMath, 1999)

Many physical problems that are usually solved by differential equation methods can be solved more effectively by integral equation methods. Such problems abound in applied mathematics, theoretical mechanics, and mathematical physics. This uncorrected soft cover reprint of the second edition places the emphasis on applications and presents a variety of techniques with extensive examples.Originally published in 1971, Linear Integral Equations is ideal as a text for a beginning graduate level course. Its treatment of boundary value problems also makes the book useful to researchers in many applied fields.

Integral equations are encountered in various fields of science and in numerous applications, including elasticity, plasticity, heat and mass transfer, oscillation theory, fluid dynamics, filtration theory, electrostatics, electrodynamics, biomechanics, game theory, control, queuing theory, electrical engineering, economics, and medicine. Exact (closed-form) solutions of integral equations play an important role in the proper understanding of qualitative features of many phenomena and processes in various areas of natural science. Equations of physics, chemistry, and biology contain functions or parameters obtained from experiments - hence, they are not strictly fixed. Therefore, it is expedient to choose the structure of these functions for more easily analyzing and solving the equation. As a possible selection criterion, one may adopt the requirement that the model integral equation admit a solution in a closed form. Exact solutions can be used to verify the consistency and estimate errors of various numerical, asymptotic, and approximate methods. The first part of Handbook of Integral Equations: Contains more than 2,100 integral equations and their solutions Includes many new exact solutions to linear and nonlinear equations Addresses equations of general form, which depend on arbitrary functions Other equations contain one or more free parameters (the book actually deals with families of integral equations); the reader has the option to fix these parameters. The second part of the book - chapters 7 through 14 - presents exact, approximate analytical, and numerical methods for solving linear and nonlinear integral equations. Apart from the classical methods, the text also describes some new methods. When selecting the material, the authors emphasize practical aspects of the matter, specifically for methods that allow an effective "constructing" of the solution. Each section provides examples of applicatio

This second edition of Linear Integral Equations continues the emphasis that the first edition placed on applications. Indeed, many more examples have been added throughout the text. Significant new material has been added in Chapters 6 and 8. For instance, in Chapter 8 we have included the solutions of the Cauchy type integral equations on the real line. Also, there is a section on integral equations with a logarithmic kernel. The bibliography at the end of the book has been exteded and brought up to date. I wish to thank Professor B.K. Sachdeva who has checked the revised man uscript and has suggested many improvements. Last but not least, I am grateful to the editor and staff of Birkhauser for inviting me to prepare this new edition and for their support in preparing it for publication. RamP Kanwal CHAYfERl Introduction 1.1. Definition An integral equation is an equation in which an unknown function appears under one or more integral signs Naturally, in such an equation there can occur other terms as well. For example, for a ~ s ~ b; a :( t :( b, the equations (1.1.1) f(s) = ib K(s, t)g(t)dt, g(s) = f(s) + ib K(s, t)g(t)dt, (1.1.2) g(s) = ib K(s, t)[g(t)fdt, (1.1.3) where the function g(s) is the unknown function and all the other functions are known, are integral equations. These functions may be complex-valued functions of the real variables s and t.

This tract is devoted to the theory of linear equations, mainly of the second kind, associated with the names of Volterra, Fredholm, Hilbert and Schmidt. The treatment has been modernised by the systematic use of the Lebesgue integral, which considerably widens the range of applicability of the theory. Special attention is paid to the singular functions of non-symmetric kernels and to obtaining as strong results as possible for the convergence of the expansions in infinite series. References are given to work on numerical methods of solution. Individual chapters deal with the resolvent kernel and the Neumann series, the Fredholm theorems, orthonormal systems of functions, the classical Fredholm theory, the Fred-holm formulae for ß2 kernels, Hermitian kernels, singular functions and singular values.

by the author to the English edition The book aims to present a powerful new tool of computational mechanics, complex variable boundary integral equations (CV-BIE). The book is conceived as a continuation of the classical monograph by N. I. Muskhelishvili into the computer era. Two years have passed since the Russian edition of the present book. We have seen growing interest in numerical simulation of media with internal structure, and have evidence of the potential of the new methods. The evidence was especially clear in problems relating to multiple grains, blocks, cracks, inclusions and voids. This prompted me, when preparing the English edition, to place more emphasis on such topics. The other change was inspired by Professor Graham Gladwell. It was he who urged me to abridge the chain of formulae and to increase the number of examples. Now the reader will find more examples showing the potential and advantages of the analysis. The first chapter of the book contains a simple exposition of the theory of real variable potentials, including the hypersingular potential and the hypersingular equations. This makes up for the absence of such exposition in current textbooks, and reveals important links between the real variable BIE and the complex variable counterparts. The chapter may also help readers who are learning or lecturing on the boundary element method.
