Abstract: In this paper we study the problem of existence and uniqueness to solutions of the nonlinear Volterra integral equation , where the are continuous linear operators mapping a Fréchet space into itself and the are nonlinear operators in that space. Solutions are sought which lie in a Banach subspace of having a stronger topology. The equations are studied first when the are of the form where is ``small", and then when the are slope restricted. This generalizes certain results in recent papers by Miller, Nohel, Wong, Sandberg, and Beneš.
