A General Inverse Problem for a Memory Kernel in One-Dimensional ViscoelasticityJaan Janno and Lothar von Wolfersdorf (1) Tallin Technical University, Estonia
A general inverse problem for the identification of a memory kernel in viscoelasticity in one space dimension is dealt with, where the kernel is represented by a finite sum of products of known spatially dependent functions and unknown time-dependent functions. Using the Laplace transform method an existence and uniqueness theorem for the memory kernel is proved.
Keywords: Inverse problems, memory kernels, viscoelasticity, Laplace transform
