### Solvability of a Fredholm system in $L^2$

Suppose $\lambda\not=0\in\mathbb{C}$. Does the following system have a non trivial solution in $L^2 [0,1]$? \begin{array} {lcl} \int_0 ^1 f(y)\log|x-y|dy=\lambda f(x) \\\int_0 ^1f(x)dx=0& ...

### Proving that a specific kernel is positive definite

Most theoretical papers concerning kernels assume that they are given a positive definite kernel. In this question, we want to show that a specific kernel is positive definite. We are interested in ...

### Fredholm Integral Involving Stochastic Process

I wish to solve an integral equation of the form $$g(X) = c\int_0^1 K(X,t)f(t) \ dt$$ where $f\in L^1([0,1])$ and $g$ is some function on finite sequences of random variables. So, $X$ is a stochastic ...

### $L^p$-derivative of Log

Let $\gamma$ be a smooth closed planar curve. Is $\int_\gamma\big(\frac{\log|\zeta-z|-\log|\zeta-w|}{|z-w|}\big)^2ds(\zeta)$ uniformly bounded in $z,w$ as $|z-w|$ is sufficiently small?another word ...
Consider an integral operator $(Kf)(x)=\int_{-1}^{1}K(x-y)f(y)dy$, where the kernel $K(-x)=K(x)$ is an even function. Let $\lambda_n$ be the ordered eigenvalues of $K$ and $f_n(x)$ the ...
I've been musing about the following question for a while now. Given an integral operator $G$ defined by $$(Gf)(x) = \int_0^1 G(x,u) f(u)\,du$$ Is it possible to decompose this into two separate ...
