Homotopy approach for solving two-dimensional integral equations of the second kind
In this paper, the two-dimensional linear and nonlinear integral equations of the second kind is analyzed. The homotopy analysis method (HAM) is used for determining the solution of the investigated equation. In this method, a solution is sought in the series form. It is shown that if this series is convergent, its sum gives the solution of the considered equation. The sufficient condition for the convergence of the series is also presented. Additionally, the error of approximate solution, obtained as partial sum of the series, is estimated. Application of the HAM is illustrated by examples.
