Operational interpretation of some integral equations occurring in impulsive wave propagation problems in layered media

  • Umesh Chandra


Inversion formulae for the operational interpretation of some integral equations, with the exponent of the integrand involving any number of radicals, are given. Equations of the form considered here are of common occurrence to quite a wide variety of impulsive wave propagation problems.
