Is it possible to find the extrema of an integral equation if the integral depends on a variable and an integral of that variable, i.e. the integrand is f(x) * g(integral(x)).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm not sure if this is a "nonlocal" functional, or not a functional at all, but I can't find any references that deal with this type of problem.

If anybody has any ideas of where I could find more information about this, please let me know.
