Asymptotic behaviour of a class of nonlinear Volterra integral equations

  • A. N. V. Rao


Sufficient conditions are given under which the solutions of the integral equation
$$\sigma (t) = f(t,\sigma (t)) + \int\limits_0^t {G(t - u)\varphi (\sigma (u))} du$$
approach 0 as t → ∞. The condition imposed on the kernel is of the frequency type which admist a geometric interpretation.
