#### 1. Introduction

The -dimensional ultrahyperbolic operator iterated -times is defined by where is the dimension of space , and is a nonnegative integer.

Consider the linear differential equation of the form where and are generalized functions and .

Gel'fand and Shilov [1] first introduced the fundamental solution of (1.2), which is a complicated form. Later, Trione [2] has shown that the generalized function , defined by (2.8) with , is a unique fundamental solution of (1.2) and Téllez [3] also proved that exists only in the case when is odd with odd or even and . A wealth of some effective works on the fundamental solution of the -dimensional classical ultrahyperbolic operator have, presented by Kananthai and Sritanratana [4–9].

In 2004, Yildirim et al. [10] have introduced the Bessel ultrahyperbolic operator iterated -times with , where [11], is a nonnegative integer, and is the dimension of . They also have studied the fundamental solution of Bessel ultrahyperbolic operator.

In 2007, Sarikaya and Yildirim [12] have studied the weak solution of the compound Bessel ultrahyperbolic equation and also studied the Bessel ultrahyperbolic heat equation [13].

In 2009, Saglam et al. [14] have developed the operator of (1.3), defined by (1.6), and it is called the ultrahyperbolic Bessel operator iterated -times. They have also studied the product of the ultrahyperbolic Bessel operator related to elastic waves.

Next, Srisombat and Nonlaopon [15] have studied the weak solution of where and are some generalized functions. They have developed (1.4) into the form which is called the compound ultrahyperbolic Bessel equation. In finding the solution of (1.5), they have used the properties of -convolution for the generalized functions.

The purpose of this study is to find the general solution of equation , where is the ultrahyperbolic Bessel operator iterated -times and is defined by , is the dimension of ,,,, is a given generalized function, is an unknown generalized function, is a nonnegative integer, is a positive constant, and .

#### 2. Preliminaries

Let be the generalized shift operator acting on the function , according to the law [11, 16]: where and . We remark that this shift operator is closely connected to the Bessel differential operator [11]: The convolution operator is determined by the as follows: The convolution (2.3) is known as a -convolution. We note the following properties of the -convolution and the generalized shift operator. (a). (b). (c)If is a bounded function all , and then (d)From (c), we have the following equality for: (e).

*Definition 2.1. *Let be a point of the -dimensional space . Denote the nondegenerated quadratic form by

The function is introduced by [10, 12, 17, 18]. It is well known that is an ordinary function if and is the distribution of if . Let , where denotes the support of .

By putting into (2.7), (2.8), and (2.9), and using the Legendre's duplication of ,
the formula (2.8) is reduced to

Note that the function is precisely the Bessel hyperbolic kernel of Marcel Riesz.

Lemma 2.2. *Given the equation

The proof of this Lemma is given in [1].

Lemma 2.5. *Given the equation

Similarly, we have

Thus, we have

If , we obtain
That is, is a solution of (2.15) with , and is an even dimension. Now can be written in the form
From (2.17), we have
with , and being an even dimension. By Lemma 2.3(a), we can write (2.24) in the from
-convolving both sides of the above equation with the function , we obtain

by Lemma 2.2.

It follows that is a solution of (2.15) with and is an even dimension.

The generalized function mentioned in Lemma 2.5 has been also studied on the aspect of multiplicative product, distributional product and applications, for more details, see [19–23].
