The problem [formula omitted] and [formula omitted], where f, g0, g1, h0, h1, s, and m are known functions while the functions u and μ are unknown, is reduced to an equivalent integral equation for the unknown function μ(t). Existence and unicity are demonstrated. A numerical procedure is discussed along with some results of numerical experiments.
