The authors extend the concept of an integrated semigroup to the Volterra integrodifferential equation P(A,\(\eta)\) \(u'(t)=\int^{t}_{0}Au(t- s)d\eta (s),\) \(u(0)=x\). The crucial condition for a strongly continuous family S(t) of bounded linear operators to be an n-times integrated solution family of P(a,\(\eta)\) is that
\[
(\lambda -{\hat \eta}(\lambda)A)^{-1}/\lambda^ n=\int e^{-\lambda t}S(t)dt,\quad \lambda >w.
\]
A number of properties of these solution families, in particular with respect to solutions of the nonhomogeneous equation, are established.
Some necessary and sufficient conditions for the problem P(A,\(\eta)\) to be governed by an integrated solution family are given. The relationship to distribution semigroups and to integrated cosine functions is discussed. Finally a number of applications are given.
