Semidefinite optimization providing guaranteed bounds on linear functionals of solutions of linear integral equations with smooth kernels. (English) Zbl 1406.90091

Summary: Based on recent progress on moment problems, semidefinite optimization approach is proposed for estimating upper and lower bounds on linear functionals defined on solutions of linear integral equations with smooth kernels. The approach is also suitable for linear integrodifferential equations with smooth kernels. Firstly, the primal problem with smooth kernel is converted to a series of approximative problems with Taylor polynomials obtained by expanding the smooth kernel. Secondly, two semidefinite programs (SDPs) are constructed for every approximative problem. Thirdly, upper and lower bounds on related functionals are gotten by applying SeDuMi 1.1R3 to solve the two SDPs. Finally, upper and lower bounds series obtained by solving two SDPs, respectively infinitely approach the exact value of discussed functional as approximative order of the smooth kernel increases. Numerical results show that the proposed approach is effective for the discussed problems.
