#### Abstract

The spaces and were defined in ((Hüseynov (1981)), pages 271–277). Some singular integral operators on Banach spaces were examined, (Dostanic (2012)), (Dunford (1988), pages 2419–2426 and (Plamenevskiy (1965)). The solutions of some singular Fredholm integral equations were given in (Babolian (2011), Okayama (2010), and Thomas (1981)) by numerical methods. In this paper, we define the sets and by taking an arbitrary Banach space instead of , and we show that these sets which are different from the spaces given in (Dunford (1988)) and (Plamenevskiy (1965)) are Banach spaces with the norms and . Besides, the bounded linear integral operators on the spaces and , some of which are singular, are derived, and the solutions of the linear Fredholm integral equations of the form and are investigated in these spaces by analytical methods.

#### 1. Preliminaries, Background, and Notation

The approximate solution of the singular integral equation was obtained in [1], where is a real-valued kernel, is a given function, and is the unknown function.

High-order numerical methods for the singular Fredholm integral equations of the form: were developed, where and are given functions, and is the unknown function. Equations of this form often arise in practical applications such as Dirichlet problems, mathematical problems of radiative equilibrium, and radiative heat transfer problems, [2].

The polar kernel of integral equations was introduced in [3, 4]. This singular kernel is in the following form: where the first term of this kernel is weakly singular and and are bounded on the square and . With , we have the special case of the above kernel: see [5]. One of the weakly singular integral and integrodifferential equations with this kernel was given in [6–8]. The solution of the singular integral equation of the form: was examined in [5] by numerical methods, where and are given functions and is the unknown function to be determined.

The integral operator defined by was studied in [9].

An integral equation of the form: is called Fredholm integral equation of the second type. Here, is a given interval, is a function on which is unknown, and is a parameter. The kernel of the equation is a given function on the square and is a given function on .

Now, we may give some required definitions and theorems.

The space is a Banach space with respect to . To see this we consider an arbitrary Cauchy sequence in , and we show that converges to a function . Since is Cauchy, for every , there exists such that
So from (41),

By (42), while or , we have
for all . We see by (44) that is Cauchy in . Since is complete, there exists a unique such that
The limit depends on the choice of . This defines a function:

Now, we want to show that and . By (48), the continuity of the norm gives together with (44) and (45) that
for all with such that or . Since for all by (49) and (50), we derive . Furthermore, since is bounded, there exists the nonnegative constant such that which yields

for all with and . By (52) and (49),
By (53) and (50),
for all and . Therefore, we obtain from (54) and (55) that there exists the nonnegative constant such that
Hence, . This step completes the proof.

for all . Thus, we obtain by (63) that and . From Theorem 12, we conclude that and

Theorem 14. *The function is continuous with respect to the Euclidean metric on . *

Besides, since

hold, there exists the nonnegative constant by (28) that the inequalities:
hold from (67) and (68), respectively. By (69), we have
Hence, the function is continuous at the arbitrary point which means that it is continuous on .

Since the proofs of Theorems 15–17 are completely similar to that of Theorems 11–14, we leave them to the reader.

(1) If , then we have from that Furthermore, for all . Since for all , . So, we have from (87). Additionally, By (89) and (83), we get where . Thus, we conclude that from (86) and (90), where .

(2) If , then , and since for all , we have . That is, (88) is obtained from (87). Besides,(i) if , then (91) is derived from (86) and (90).(ii) If , since , we get by taking instead of in (86). Let Since , (91) is derived from (90). By and , we show that (88) and (91) hold. Therefore, and So, Lemma 18 holds for all .
