S 1]). 21) holds. It can be shown more generally (cf. [S 1]) that if , then and appears as the space of multipliers ′ → ′ while is the space of distributions mapping ′ → ′ under convolution. We shall not need these facts and hence refer the proof to the exercises. The only instance of the exchange formula to which we shall have any occasion to refer seriously is the formula for T ∈ ′ and a proof of this is much simpler (Exercise 13). Note that both sides make sense, since obviously S ∈ ′ for , S ∈ ′ while P(D) * T ∈ ′ since [cf.

3 A seminorm in a vector space F over K (= C or R) is a function p : F → R satisfying (a) p(x + y) ≤ p(x) + p(y); (b) p(x) = ||p(x). If, in addition, p(x) = 0 implies x = 0, then p is called a norm. We recall now that a topology on a collection of objects F is defined by the prescription of what are to be open sets, where, to qualify as a family of open sets, a family O of subsets of F must satisfy Then one defines a neighborhood (nbh) of a point to be any set containing an open set containing the point and we denote by N(x) the family of nbhs of x.

For any T ′, * T = T. Indeed, Thus acts as an identity for *. 4. 11). Proof Let supp = K and supp S = A. Then supp ( + ) is determined by the condition + ∈ K and evidently supp S ⊗ T ⊂ A × Rn. If , then (, ) ∈ M means ∈ A, + ∈ K and hence ∈ K − A; thus M ⊂ A × (K − A), which is compact. Consider ∈ with = 1 in a compact nbh of A; then and equals ( + ) on a nbh of supp S ⊗ T. We shall define also in passing, multiplication of a C function with a distribution T ∈ ′ by the formula, for ∈ Thus, S = S in ′ or ′ by a previous discussion (〈S, 〉 = 〈S, 〉 and = on a nbh of supp S).
