    Volterra equation, asymptotic behaviour

    Dear all,

    I want to solve the Volterra integral equation (of 2nd kind). But I only need to solve it analytically for large times "tau", i.e. I only need the asymptotic behaviour as "tau -> infinity".

    By simple algebra, I obtain an approximative analytical expression in this limit. However, this expression is not in agreement with the exact numerical solution of the relevant Volterra equation. Please see PDF-file attached!

    Can anyone help me finding a right asymptotic expression for "c(tau)"?

    I appreciate any feedback!

    Al the best,
    perr


    PS:
    I have also tried to solve this applying Laplace transformation. However, I'm not sure that this method will help me here: Suppose that the solution "c(tau)" scales as "1/tau", I am not sure how to get a "1/tau" term from Laplace transform analysis since the Laplace transform of "1/t" diverges.
