Integral equation from an amateur's standpoint : technical memorandum
Methods of solution of linear integral equations are described. Methods are compared and ranked with respect to the ease with which they can yield exact analytical solutions in closed form. It is concluded that methods based on transform theory are most efficient. The transform method uses the transform property of the kernel operation itself, or that of an external transform operator, e .g., Laplace's transform. In the latter case the integral equation is Laplace-transformed, whereas in the former case the equation is "kernel"-transformed. The kernel-transform procedure yields immediate result ...
