By the technique of asymptotic expansions in singular perturbations, we study the inner solutions of the viscous shock profiles. The equations for inner solutions with respect to the power of viscous constant are derived. We show that the equations of inner solutions of O(1) and O(ε) can be modified to the scalar integro-differential equations. The existence and uniqueness of solutions for such two point boundary value problems are established by contraction mapping principle. Table of Content 中文摘要 --i
