A simple method is described which can be used to generate complementary bivariational principles yielding upper and lower bounds to the quantity Q = ∫S p(s)n0(s)ds, where p(s) is the (vector) solution of a linear integral equation of Fredholm type p0(s)=p(s)-λ ∫S K(s,s′)p(s′)ds′ and n0(s) and p0(s) are given functions. The method involves a generalization, requiring two approximating functions, of results obtained from a study of the particular case n0(s)=p0(s), a classical variational problem occurring in transport theory and other fields of applied mathematics. The bounds are compared with those of other authors and some further generalizations are indicated.
