Abstract : Lovitt among others points out that the solution of the Volterra, linear, integral equation of the second kind is equivalent to the solution of some n-th order, linear differential equation. With the exception of those integral equations which are soluble by direct differentiation, this equivalence is a little used, yet powerful technique, for solving certain classes of Volterra equations. In this paper two such classes of Volterra equations are identified and recipes for their solution are developed. (Author)
