where r2 = x2 + 2/2.
Now, if t' be any time between. 0 and t, we have, as in (19),
Multiplying this by (t — t')~^ dt' and integrating between 0 and t, we get

In (22) the first integral is the same as the integral in (19). By Abel's theorem the double integral in (22) is equal to TrV(t), since F(0)=0. Thus
(23)
If we  now eliminate the integral between (19)  and  (23), we  obtain simply

as the differential equation governing the motion of the lamina.
This is a linear equation of the first order.    Since V vanishes with t, the integral may be written
in which t' = t. 4p2j//<r2.    When i, or t', is great,

Ultimately, when t is very great,n ingenious application of Abel's theorem Boggio has succeeded in integrating equations which include (19)*. The theorem is as follows: — If ty(t) be defined by
