Abstract: We develop a semigroup setting for linear viscoelasticity in three-dimensional space with tensor-valued relaxation modulus and give a criterion on the relaxation kernel for differentiability and analyticity of the solutions. The method is also extended to a simple problem in thermoviscoelasticity.
