On the solvability of a nonlocal problem arising in dynamics of moisture transfer. (English) Zbl 1059.35072
Summary: In the recent years, evolution problems with an integral term in the boundary conditions have received a great deal of attention. Such problems, in general, are nonself-adjoint, and this poses the basic source of difficulty, which can considerably complicate the application of standard functional and numerical techniques. To avoid these complications, we have introduced a nonclassical function space to establish a priori estimates without any additional complication as compared to the classical evolution problems. As an example of the applicability of this way of solving problems of this type, we investigate an initial-boundary value problem for a pseudoparabolic equation which combines Neumann and integral conditions.
