We study an abstract inverse problem of reconstruction of the solution of a semilinear mixed integrodifferential parabolic problem, together with a convolution kernel. The supplementary information required to solve the problem also involves a convolution term with the same unknown kernel. The abstract results are applicable to the identification of a memory kernel in a strongly damped wave equation using a flux condition.
