#### Abstract

In this attempt, we introduce a new technique to solve main generalized Abel’s integral equations and generalized weakly singular Volterra integral equations analytically. This technique is based on the Adomian decomposition method, Laplace transform method, and -Riemann–Liouville fractional integrals. Finally, some examples are proposed and they illustrate the rapidness of our new technical method.

#### 1. Introduction

Fractional dynamic varying systems with singular kernels either in the Riemann–Liouville sense or in the Caputo sense have been investigated in the literature . To solve a fractional dynamic equation, we always apply a corresponding fractional integral operator. The action of this integral operator will transform the fractional dynamic equation into its corresponding integral equation whose singularity is reflected in the kernel. Motivated by this fact, in this article, we introduce a new technique to solve main generalized Abel’s integral equations and generalized weakly singular Volterra integral equations analytically.

Let and . Consider the main generalized Abel’s integral equation [4, 5]:and the generalized weakly singular Volterra type integral equation of the second kind [4, 5]:where is a strictly monotonically increasing and differentiable function in the interval with for every in and is a constant.

Particularly, if and , then integral equation (1) reduces to the classical Abel’s integral equation in which Abel, in 1823, investigated the motion of a particle that slides down along a smooth unknown curve under the influence of the gravity in a vertical plane. The particle takes the time to move from the highest point of vertical height to the lowest point 0 on the curve. This problem is derived to find the equation of that curve. Indeed, Abel’s integral equation is one of the most famous equations that frequently appear in many engineering problems and physical properties such as heat conduction, semiconductors, chemical reactions, and metallurgy (see, e.g., [6, 7]). Besides, over the past few years, many numerical methods for solving Abel’s integral equation have been developed, such as collocation methods , product integration methods [9, 10], fractional multistep methods , methods based on wavelets , backward Euler methods , Adomian decomposition method , and Tau approximation method .

Recently, Wazwaz [4, 5] solved integral equations (1) and (2). Unlike [4, 5], in the present paper, we are going to introduce a new technique, which is based on the Adomian decomposition method, Laplace transform method, and -Riemann–Liouville fractional integrals, for solving main generalized Abel’s integral equations and generalized weakly singular Volterra integral equations. For related works on generalized fractional derivatives in the Riemann–Liouville and Caputo senses and their Laplace transforms, we refer to . Moreover, there are several methods used in obtaining approximate solutions to linear and nonlinear fractional ordinary differential equations (FODEs) and fractional partial differential equations (FPDEs) and their real-world applications. For this reason, we advise the readers to visit .

The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we recall the definitions of Riemann–Liouville fractional integrals, -Riemann–Liouville fractional integrals, and some essential properties. Section 3 is devoted to deliver the main results for the generalized Abel’s integral equations and generalized weakly singular Volterra integral equations. In Section 4, several examples are considered to illustrate the applicability of our main results.

#### 2. Preliminaries

Here, we give the definitions of Riemann–Liouville fractional integrals, -Riemann–Liouville fractional integrals, and some essential properties.

Definition 1. Let and let be a finite interval on the real-axis . The left and right-sided Riemann–Liouville fractional integrals of order are, respectively, defined by 

Definition 2. Let be a finite or infinite interval of the real-axis and . Let be an increasing and positive function on the interval with a continuous derivative on the interval . Then, the left and right-sided -Riemann–Liouville fractional integrals of a function with respect to another function on are defined by [29, 30]If we set in (4), then Definition 2 reduces to Definition 1.
The following lemmas hold in [29, 30].

Lemma 1. Let , and ; then,

In this paper, using the Adomian decomposition method and Laplace transform method combined with Lemma 1, we produce a new powerful technique. By using this technique, we obtain exact solution for main generalized Abel’s integral equations and generalized weakly singular Volterra integral equations.

#### 3. Main Results

Now, we give our main results.

Lemma 3 (see [4, 5]). If is bounded on , is strictly monotonically increasing and differentiable function in some interval and for every in . Then, Abel’s integral equation (1) has the following solution:

Corollary 2. Under the similar assumptions of Theorem 2, if , then the solution of the generalized weakly singular Volterra type integral equation (2) is

The noise terms may appear between components of and of (15) with opposite signs. Hence, by canceling these noise terms between these components, we may give the exact solution that should be justified through substitution and thus minimize the size of the calculations. In this situation, we use the following corollary.

Corollary 3. Under the similar assumptions of Theorem 2, the solution of the generalized weakly singular Volterra type integral equation (2) can be obtained as

Proof. To prove this, we use one of the Mittag–Leffler function’s properties, that is [31, 32],From this, we can write (17) asThis completes the proof.

Theorem 3. Under the similar assumptions of Theorem 2, if , then the exact of the generalized weakly singular Volterra type integral equation (2) is given byor equivalently

By using property (19), we easily obtain the proof of the second part of this theorem. Thus, the proof of Theorem 3 is completed.

Remark 2. Due to the occurrence of the noise terms between and , we can write aswhich is obtained from (21) and (22).
Now, we introduce some spaces of the continuous functions in order to obtain the boundness of the above solution.

By making use of Theorem 1 and inequality (34) with , we obtainLet ; then, by using Definition 3 and Lemma 2 and since is an increasing function, we haveThis completes the proof of the first inequality of (ii). By making use of Theorem 1 and inequality (37) with , we can deduce the second part inequality in (ii).

Theorem 5. For any , we have

By making use of Theorem 1 and formula (42) with , we can deduce the second part of theorem.

Also, we have solved several examples with our proposed technique. We can observe that our developed technique is easy and straightforward to apply.
