Error Estimates for the Time Discretization of a Semilinear Integrodifferential Parabolic Problem with Unknown Memory Kernel

  • Marijke Grimmonprez (a1), Karel Van Bockstal (a1) and Marián Slodička (a1)

This paper is devoted to the study of an inverse problem containing a semilinear integrodifferential parabolic equation with an unknown memory kernel. This equation is accompanied by a Robin boundary condition. The missing kernel can be recovered from an additional global measurement in integral form. In this contribution, an error analysis is performed for a time-discrete numerical scheme based on Backward Euler's Method. The theoretical results are supported by some numerical experiments.
