Name of a type of differential equations

  1. Nov 22, 2011 #1
    Dear all,

    I am interested in solving the following type of system of differential equations for η(x):

    (1) ∫η(x)ω(x)=0
    (2) ∫η'(x)ω(x)=0

    for known ω(x), and known limits of the integral. Does this type of equations have a name? Can someone help me to find some reference? Thanks a ton!

    These are Fredholm integral equations of the first kind.
