The crucial role in appearance of the theory of generalized func-tions (in the sense the theory of distributions) was played by J. Ha-damard, K.O. Friedrichs, S. Bochner, and especially to L. Schwartz, who published, in –, a series of remarkable papers concern-ing the theory of distributions, and in – a two-volume book. The book is devoted to various applications of this notion, such as the theory of positive definite generalized functions, the theory of generalized stochastic processes, and the study of measures on linear topological spaces.

This third edition of "Generalized Functions" expands the treatment of fundamental concepts and theoretical background material and delineates connections to a variety of applications in mathematical physics, elasticity, wave propagation, magnetohydrodynamics, linear systems, probability and statistics, optimal control problems in economics, and more. It took me some time to notice the edit of the introduction by C.M., but I do not agree at all: neither in Schwartz distributions, nor any other theory mentioned (nonstandard, Colombeau), the generalized functions are R- or the first added phrase is at least misleading.

but there is another approach. Temple was the first who based the theory exclusively on limits of "good" functions, then Lighthill wrote An Introduction to Fourier Analysis and Generalised Functions (Cambridge Monographs on Mechanics and Applied Mathematics) and thereby put this approach on the agenda in teaching at universities.

In addition, the author provides applications developed through his own research. Students of quantum field theory will find this text of particular value.

The text begins with an introduction that defines the basic concepts and elementary propositions, along with the more salient facts from the theory of functions of real variables and the theory of generalized functions.

The theory of generalized functions is a fundamental part of the toolkit of mathematicians, physicists, and theoretically inclined engineers. It has become increasingly clear that methods based on this theory, also known as the theory of distributions, not only help us to solve previously unsolved problems but also enalble us to recover known solutions in a very simple manner.

Furthermore, generalized function theory elucidates and unifies many ad hoc mathematical approaches used by engineers and scientists. We define generalized functions as continuous linear functionals on the space of infinitely differentiable functions with compact support, then introduce the concept of generalized differentiation.

Generalized Functions, Volume 4: Applications of Harmonic Analysis is devoted to two general topics—developments in the theory of linear topological spaces and construction of harmonic analysis in n-dimensional Euclidean and infinite-dimensional Edition: 1.The distribution theory of tz is practically non applicable to non-linear problems.

Over the past decade, a new theory of generalized functions has been developed by eau. It can work in non-linear theories but it is too complicated. Here another new theory is proposed which is more simple and more general than the Colombeau’s by: The first systematic theory of generalized functions (also known as distributions) was created in the early s, although some aspects were developed much earlier, most notably in the definition of the Green's function in mathematics and in the work of Paul Dirac on quantum electrodynamics in physics.
