Abstract: It is shown that the critical constant for effective inversions in operator algebras $ \mathrm {alg}(V)$ generated by the Volterra integration $ Jf=\int _{0}^{x}f\,dt$ in the spaces $ L^{1}(0,1)$ and $ L^{2}(0,1)$ are different: respectively, $ \delta _{1}=1/2$ (i.e., the effective inversion is possible only for polynomials $ T=p(J)$ with a small condition number $ r(T^{-1})\Vert T\Vert < 2$, $ r(\,\cdot \, )$ being the spectral radius), and $ \delta _{1}=1$ (no norm control of inverses). For more general integration operator $ J_{\mu }f=\int _{[0,x\rangle }f\,d\mu $ on the space $ L^{2}([0,1],\mu )$ with respect to an arbitrary finite measure $ \mu $, the following $ 0-1$ law holds: either $ \delta _{1}=0$ (and this happens if and only if $ \mu $ is a purely discrete measure whose set of point masses $ \mu (\{x\})$ is a finite union of geometrically decreasing sequences), or $ \delta _{1}=1$.
