    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • The course is an introduction to the theory of generalized functions (distributions) as functionals defined on certain classes of test functions. Starting with examples such as the Dirac delta-function I will talk about the basic properties of generalized functions including local properties and regularization of divergent integrals. Then I will also talk about differentiation and integration of generalized functions, and their application to divergent Fourier series, and to solving ODE and PDE. Then we will consider the convolution of generalized functions and Fourier and Laplace transform. We will also consider Abel’s integral equation and fractional derivatives.
      After completing the course, students should know the definition and basic (analytic) properties of generalized functions and the spaces of generalized functions, and be able to apply them in different areas of mathematics such as ODE, PDE, and integral equations.
