Abstract: We consider a timenonhomogeneous perturbation of the classical renewal equation with continuous time on the semiaxis that can be reduced to the Volterra integral equation with a nonnegative bounded (or with a substochastic) kernel. We assume that this kernel is approximated by a convolution kernel for large time intervals and that the latter is generated by a substochastic distribution. We find necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of the limit of a solution of the perturbed equation under the assumption that the corresponding perturbation is small in a certain sense. We also obtain estimates for the deviation of the solutions of the perturbed equations from those of the initial equations. Several applications are described.
