Integral equation boundary layer problems

  • G. F. Carrier


The solutions to certain types of integral equation are found by a method whose motivation is essentially that of the boundary layer technique as applied to differential equations. Both the homogeneous and non-homogeneous problems are treated and the latter is exemplified by the solution of a problem taken from a viscosity measuring experiment.
