Summary: We study the inverse problem of the reconstruction of the coefficient \(\varrho (x,t)= \varrho^{0}(x,t)+r(x)\) multiplying \(u_t\) in a nonstationary parabolic equation. Here \(\varrho^{0}(x,t) \geq \varrho_{0}>0\) is a given function, and \(r(x) \geq 0\) is an unknown function of the class \(L_\infty(\Omega)\). In addition to the initial and boundary conditions (the data of the direct problem), we pose the problem of nonlocal observation in the form \(\int_{0}^{T}u(x,t)d \mu(t)= \chi (x)\) with a known measure \(d \mu(t)\) and a function \(\chi (x)\). We separately consider the case \(d \mu (t)= \omega (t)dt\) of integral observation with a smooth function \(\omega (t)\). We obtain sufficient conditions for the existence and uniqueness of the solution of the inverse problem, which have the form of ready-to-verify inequalities. We suggest an iterative procedure for finding the solution and prove its convergence. Examples of particular inverse problems for which the assumptions of our theorems hold are presented.
