Is this a non linear integral equation ?

    fx = ∫ exp(1-x^2)^.5 limits are b,-b

    No. That's just an integral but your notation is very ambiguous. Tell you what, I'll give you an example of a non-linear integral equation:

    [tex]f(x)=x+\int_0^1 t \left(f(t)\right)^2 dt[/tex]

    and the objective is to find a function f(x) that satisfies that equation.
