A note on certain integral equations associated with non-linear time series analysis

  • K. S. Chan

We consider the integral equation inh\(h(y) = \int\limits_{\mathbb{R}^n } {f(y - \hat Tx)h(x)dx,} \) wheref is a p.d.f. and\(\hat T:\mathbb{R}^n \to \mathbb{R}^n \). It is well known that explicit solutions rarely exist. However, it is shown in this paper that, if certain symmetry exists, the above equation sometimes admits an explicit solution. Illustrations are included.
