of an integral equation

The property that a linear integral equation is solvable if and only if its right-hand side is orthogonal to all solutions of the corresponding homogeneous adjoint equation. Under appropriate conditions a Fredholm equation, a singular integral equation and an integral equation of convolution type are normally solvable.
