Hi there, I have been recently trying to solve the following integral equation: \begin{eqnarray} y(x)=f(x)+\int_{a}^{b}dt K(xt)y(t) \end{eqnarray} where the kernel is symmetric and translational. I know there is a theory to solve this general Fredholm equations in finite intervals, but I hope the solution simplifies a lot when the kernel satisfies the above properties, can anyone help on this? I have been trying to find material on the internet but I have been unsuccesful , thanks a lot!

The classic method is to apply WeinerHopf https://www.google.co.uk/?gws_rd=ssl#q=weinerhopf Sneddon has a good derivation of applying this to Fredholm The Use of Integral Transforms Ian N Sneddon p 87 91 A more modern book is A textbook of Special Functions in Mathematics (Linear Integral Equations) Pratap and Singh This has lots of special cases and simplifications, including yours.

Thanks for the reply, but the WienerHopf method is only applicable on the half line, that is, the interval $[0.+\infty)$ or $(\infty,0]$, whereas I want to solve the equation in a finite interval in the positive semiaxis!!
