In this paper the author studies existence and bifurcation of a nonlinear homogeneous Volterra integral equation, which is derived as the first approximation for the solution of the time dependent generalization of the von Kármán equations. The last system serves as a model for stability (instability) of a thin rectangular visco-elastic plate whose two opposite edges are subjected to a constant loading which depends on the parameters of proportionality of this boundary loading.
