Abstract: Let be the dimensional upper half Euclidean space, and let be any real number satisfying In this paper, we consider the integral equation  (1)  where , and is the reflection of the point about the hyperplane . We use a new type of moving plane method in integral forms introduced by Chen, Li and Ou to establish the regularity and rotational symmetry of the solution of the above integral equation.
