# Some properties of layer potentials and boundary integral operators for the wave equation

@article{Domnguez2011SomePO, title={Some properties of layer potentials and boundary integral operators for the wave equation}, author={V{\'i}ctor Dom{\'i}nguez and Francisco-Javier Sayas}, journal={arXiv: Analysis of PDEs}, year={2011} }

In this work we establish some new estimates for layer potentials of the acoustic wave equation in the time domain, and for their associated retarded integral operators. These estimates are proven using time-domain estimates based on theory of evolution equations and improve known estimates that use the Laplace transform.
