Abstract: The equation governing the evolution of a displacement vector in an elastic body with dissipative temporal and spatial non-local memory is considered. The memory term is generated by a singular but integrable kernel. The existence of a global weak solution to the associated initial-boundary problem is established by constructing Galerkin approximations and deriving a suitable energy estimate.

Keywords: singular viscoelasticity, energy estimates, weak solutions

Classification (MSC2000): 45K05, 73F15
