Function as an integral of itself

\[ \large g(x) = e^x \int_0^1 e^x g(x) \, dx \]

Find \(g(0) \).

\[\large g(x)=e^x \underbrace{\displaystyle\int_0^1e^xg(x)\mathrm{d}x}_{\text{Constant=C}}=Ce^x\]

\[C=\displaystyle\int_0^1e^x(Ce^x)\mathrm{d}x=\frac C2(e^2-1)\implies C=0\]

Hence \(\large g(x)=0\forall x\in \mathbb R\)

Hence \(g(0)=0\). Rishabh Cool · 7 months, 1 week ago

@Rishabh Cool Explain, how is that a constant? Rishabh Kumar · 7 months ago

Couldn't \(g(x) = 0?\) Just seems like \(g(0) = 0\) then. Andrew Ellinor · 7 months, 1 week ago
