This article focuses on obtaining analytical solutions for d-dimensional, parabolic Volterra integro-differential equations with different types of frictional memory kernel. Based on Laplace transform and Fourier transform theories, the properties of the Fox-H function and convolution theorem, analytical solutions for the equations in the infinite domain are derived under three frictional memory kernel functions. The analytical solutions are expressed by infinite series, the generalized multi-parameter Mittag-Leffler function, the Fox-H function and the convolution form of the Fourier transform. In addition, graphical representations of the analytical solution under different parameters are given for one-dimensional parabolic Volterra integro-differential equations with a power-law memory kernel. It can be seen that the solution curves are subject to Gaussian decay at any given moment. View Full-Text
