We investigate periodic traveling-wave solutions to the Whitham equation. It is shown that for solutions of this type, the Whitham equation can be expressed as a nonlinear integral equation of Hammerstein form. Solutions to this integral equation are then obtained by iteration. Representative numerical results are presented to illustrate the waveshapes and the nonlinear dispersion characteristics of the solutions thus obtained.
