We study an inverse problem to determine a nonlinearity of an autonomous equation from a blow-up time of solutions of the equation. A local well-posedness of the inverse problem near a nonlinearity of the type $u^{1+\sigma}$, $\sigma>0$, is established. The paper also suggests that the inverse problem has a good, mathematical structure from a viewpoint of the Wiener-Hopf theory in integral equations.
