Abstract: The existence and uniqueness of smooth global large data solutions of a class of quasilinear partial integrodifferential equations in one space and one time dimension are proved, if the integral kernel behaves like $t^{-\alpha }$ near $t=0$ with $\alpha > 2/3$. An existence and regularity theorem for linear equations with variable coefficients that are related to this type is also proved in arbitrary space dimensions and with no restrictions for $\alpha $.
