2i) is solvable. 31. Let f be nondecreasing on the second argument and for some Zo E (0, 1) let rues {t E (a,b) : f(t, zo) < 0} > 0. 21) to have a unique solution it is necessary and su~cient that f b(t-a)(b-t)lf(t,x)ldt < +co for z > 0. 26) PROOF: We first prove sufficiency. Since f is nonpositive and nondecreasing on the second argument, we have, for any b E (0,1), f;(t) = lf(t,6)l. 26). 8) and the function h ( t ) = 6of(t, zo) satisfies the condition / b(t - a)(b - t)lh(t)l dt < b - a. 24) hold.
