Some properties of the resolvent kernels for integral equations with bi-Carleman kernels

Igor M. Novitskii

2016, issue 2, P. 186-208

We prove that, at regular values lying in a region of generalized strong convergence, the resolvent kernels corresponding to a continuous bi-Carleman kernel vanishing at infinity can be expressed as uniform limits of sequences of resolvent kernels associated with its approximating Hilbert-Schmidt-type subkernels.
