Starting from an elementary level Professor Jones discusses generalised functions and their applications. He aims to supply the simplest introduction for those who wish to learn to use generalised functions and there is liberal provision of exercises with which to gain experience. The study of more advanced topics such as partial differential equations, Laplace transforms and ultra-distributions should also make it a valuable source for researchers. The demands placed upon the reader's analytical background are the minimum required to approach this topic. Therefore, by selecting chapters it is possible to construct a short introductory course for students, a final-year option for honours undergraduates or a comprehensive postgraduate course.

Explaining and comparing the various standard types of generalised functions which have been developed during the 20th Century, this text also contains accounts of recent non-standard theories of distributions, ultradistributions and Stato-hyperfunctions. The book could readily be used as a main text on generalised functions for mathematical undergraduates in final year analysis courses, as it presupposes little more than a general mathematical background. It also makes a valuable reference text for non-specific applied mathematics students, such as physicists or electrical engineers, needing to gain expertise in the application of generalised functions to physical problems, without any prior acquaintance of the specialised subject matter. An ideal companion book to Delta Functions, also by Professor Hoskins. Explains and compares the various standard types of generalised functions that have been developed during the 20th Century Contains accounts of recent non-standard theories of distributions, ultradistributions and Stato-hyperfunctions

This volume presents the general theory of generalized functions, including the Fourier, Laplace, Mellin, Hilbert, Cauchy-Bochner and Poisson integral transforms and operational calculus, with the traditional material augmented by the theory of Fourier series, abelian theorems, and boundary values of helomorphic functions for one and several variables. The author addresses several facets in depth, including convolution theory, convolution algebras and convolution equations in them, homogenous generalized functions, and multiplication of generalized functions. This book will meet the needs of researchers, engineers, and students of applied mathematics, control theory, and the engineering sciences.

This important book gives an interconnected presentation of some basic ideas, concepts, results of the theory of generalised functions (first of all, in the framework of the theory of distributions) and equations of mathematical physics. A part of the material is given according to the scheme: definition -- theorem -- proof. This scheme is convenient for presenting results in clear and concentrated form. However, it seems reasonable to give a student the possibility not only to study a priori given definitions and proofs of theorems, but also to discover them while considering the problems involved. A series of sections serve this purpose. Moreover, a part of the material is given as exercises and problems.

This systematic exposition outlines the fundamentals of the theory of single sheeted domains of holomorphy. It further illustrates applications to quantum field theory, the theory of functions, and differential equations with constant coefficients. 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. Subsequent chapters address the theory of plurisubharmonic functions and pseudoconvex domains, along with characteristics of domains of holomorphy. These explorations are further examined in terms of four types of domains: multiple-circular, tubular, semitubular, and Hartogs' domains. Surveys of integral representations focus on the Martinelli-Bochner, Bergman-Weil, and Bochner representations. The final chapter is devoted to applications, particularly those involved in field theory. It employs the theory of generalized functions, along with the theory of functions of several complex variables.

Nobel prize winner Ilya Prigogine writes in his preface: "Irreversibility is a challenge to mathematics...[which] leads to generalized functions and to an extension of spectral analysis beyond the conventional Hilbert space theory." Meeting this challenge required new mathematical formulations-obstacles met and largely overcome thanks primarily to the contributors to this volume." This compilation of works grew out of material presented at the "Hyperfunctions, Operator Theory and Dynamical Systems" symposium at the International Solvay Institutes for Physics and Chemistry in 1997. The result is a coherently organized collective work that moves from general, widely applicable mathematical methods to ever more specialized physical applications. Presented in two sections, part one describes Generalized Functions and Operator Theory, part two addresses Operator Theory and Dynamical Systems. The interplay between mathematics and physics is now more necessary than ever-and more difficult than ever, given the increasing complexity of theories and methods. Here the topics include:

Distribution theory, a relatively recent mathematical approach to classical Fourier analysis, not only opened up new areas of research but also helped promote the development of such mathematical disciplines as ordinary and partial differential equations, operational calculus, transformation theory, and functional analysis. This text was one of the first to give a clear explanation of distribution theory; it combines the theory effectively with extensive practical applications to science and engineering problems. Based on a graduate course given at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, this book has two objectives: to provide a comparatively elementary introduction to distribution theory and to describe the generalized Fourier and Laplace transformations and their applications to integrodifferential equations, difference equations, and passive systems. After an introductory chapter defining distributions and the operations that apply to them, Chapter 2 considers the calculus of distributions, especially limits, differentiation, integrations, and the interchange of limiting processes. Some deeper properties of distributions, such as their local character as derivatives of continuous functions, are given in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 introduces the distributions of slow growth, which arise naturally in the generalization of the Fourier transformation. Chapters 5 and 6 cover the convolution process and its use in representing differential and difference equations. The distributional Fourier and Laplace transformations are developed in Chapters 7 and 8, and the latter transformation is applied in Chapter 9 to obtain an operational calculus for the solution of differential and difference equations of the initial-condition type. Some of the previous theory is applied in Chapter 10 to a discussion of the fundamental properties of certain physical systems, while Chapter 11 ends the book with a consideration of periodic distributions. Suitable for a graduate course for engineering and science students or for a senior-level undergraduate course for mathematics majors, this book presumes a knowledge of advanced calculus and the standard theorems on the interchange of limit processes. A broad spectrum of problems has been included to satisfy the diverse needs of various types of students.
