The existence and uniqueness of solutions of more general Volterra-Fredholm integral equations are investigated. The successive approximations method based on the general idea of T. Wazewski is the main tool.
Summary We discuss the existence or the existence and uniqueness of global and local Λ-bounded variation (ΛBV) solutions as well as continuous ΛBV-solutions of nonlinear Hammerstein and Volterra-Hammerstein integral equations formulated in terms of the Lebesgue integral. Since the space of functions of bounded variation in the sense of Jordan is a proper subspace of functions of Λ-bounded variation and for some class of functions φ, the space of functions of bounded φ-variation in the sense of Young is also a proper subspace of the space under consideration, our results extend known results in the literature.
We define an alternate convexically nonexpansive map T on a bounded, closed, convex subset C of a Banach space X and prove that if X is a strictly convex Banach space and C is a nonempty weakly compact convex subset of X, then every alternate convexically nonexpansive map T : C → C has a fixed point. As its application, we give an existence result for the solution of an integral equation.
