Solution of Wiener-Hopf and Fredholm integral equations by fast Hilbert and Fourier transforms

06/09/2021 ∙ by Guido Germano, et al. ∙ 0

We present numerical methods based on the fast Fourier transform (FFT) to solve convolution integral equations on a semi-infinite interval (Wiener-Hopf equation) or on a finite interval (Fredholm equation). We extend and improve a FFT-based method for the Wiener-Hopf equation due to Henery, expressing it in terms of the Hilbert transform, and computing the latter in a more sophisticated way with sinc functions. We then generalise our method to the Fredholm equation reformulating it as two coupled Wiener-Hopf equations and solving them iteratively. We provide numerical tests and open-source code.
