80) where O is a known constant. Given the kernel K(x,y), and the function f(x), the problem is to determine the function I (y). A standard approach to solving Eq. 80) is called an integral equation Neumann series, which may be described as follows. 81) ... 82) ... 80) may be solved as follows. 86) Now multiply both sides of Eq. 87) By Eq. 86), the first term of Eq. 87) is just ci. 88) So Eq. 2 Volterra integral equations It is noted from Eq. 79) that the integration limits of a Fredholm equation are constants.

14), and later into Eq. 19) w2 w2 w2 E E 2 12 11 wx12 wx1 wx2 wx22 Eliminating < and V from Eq. 20) As discussed in [4] within the framework of anisotropic elasticity, Eq. 21) where D and E are real numbers. By introducing Eq. 21) into Eq. 20), and F (6) using the chain rule of differentiation, an expression of the form {} 0 is obtained. 22) Owing to the particular material symmetry of the piezoelectricity under investigation, the polynomial is expressed in terms of even powers of P. This allows us to solve Eq.

49) into Eq. 50) Letting p=K/[, we have eight eigenvalues p from Eq. 50), which consists of four pairs of complex conjugates [11]. Denote KM pM [ ® ¯ pM [ ([ ! 51) where M=1, 2, 3, 4. It is obvious that Im(KM)>0 for all [. Such a definition is expedient for development of the subsequent derivation. A general solution of Eq. 47) is obtained from a linear combination of the eight eigensolutions, say Fi and Gi 30 Chapter 2 Solution Methods (i=1-4), which are obtained by replacing K in Eq. 49) with K M (M=1-4), when the roots pM are distinct.
