|A short article designed to provide an introduction to integral equations, which seek functions that satisfy relationships with their integrals. For example, the value of a function at each time may be related to its average value over all preceding time. Included in this area are equations mixing integration and differentiation. Many of the themes from differential equations recur: qualitative questions, methods of approximation, specific types of equations of interest, transforms and operators useful for simplifying the problems. History; applications and related fields and subfields; textbooks, reference works, and tutorials; software and tables; other web sites with this focus.|
