### Existence of entropy solutions to a doubly nonlinear integro-differential equation

#### Abstract

We consider a class of doubly nonlinear history-dependent problems associated with the equation $$\partial_{t}k\ast(b(v)- b(v_{0})) = \text{div}\, a(x,Dv) + f .$$ Our assumptions on the kernel $k$ include the case $k(t) = t^{-\alpha}/\Gamma(1-\alpha)$, in which case the left-hand side becomes the fractional derivative of order $\alpha\in (0,1)$ in the sense of Riemann-Liouville. Existence of entropy solutions is established for general $L^{1}-$data and Dirichlet boundary conditions. Uniqueness of entropy solutions has been shown in a previous work.
