Inverse Problem for an Integro-Differential Equation of Acoustics
- 23 Downloads
We consider the hyperbolic integro-differential equation of acoustics. The direct problem is to determine the acoustic pressure created by a concentrated excitation source located at the boundary of a spatial domain from the initial boundary-value problem for this equation. For this direct problem, we study the inverse problem, which consists in determining the onedimensional kernel of the integral term from the known solution of the direct problem at the point x = 0 for t > 0. This problem reduces to solving a system of integral equations in unknown functions. The latter is solved by using the principle of contraction mapping in the space of continuous functions. The local unique solvability of the posed problem is proved.
