### Similarity solutions for a class of hyperbolic integrodifferential equations

#### Abstract

For a class of hyperbolic partial integrodifferential equations of the form $u_{tt} - u_{xx} + a*u_{xx} = 0$, fundamental solutions are found that depend on the similarity variable $\xi =x(t-|x|)^{-\alpha}$, where $\alpha \in (0,1)$ and the integral kernel $a$ behaves like $t^{-\alpha}$ near $t=0$. The asymptotic behavior of these solutions in various scaling limits and their regularity is discussed. Applications to solutions of general initial-value problems of such equations are given.
