A New Kontorovich-Lebedev-Like Transformation

Price: $20.00


A different application of the familiar integral representation for the modified Bessel function drives to a new Kontorovich-Lebedev-like integral transformation of a general complex index. Mapping and operational properties, a convolution operator and inversion formula are established. Solvability conditions and explicit solutions of the corresponding class of convolution integral equations are exhibited. Finally, as a valuable application it is shown, that the introduced transformation is a key ingredient for solving difference equations of the order $n \in \mathbb{N}$ with constant coefficients in a class of analytic functions in the right half-plane ${\rm Re} z > n.$
