Bornologically isomorphic representations of distributions on manifolds

  • Eduard Albert Nigsch


Distributional tensor fields can be regarded as multilinear mappings on smooth tensor fields with distributional values or as (classical) tensor fields with distributional coefficients. We show that the corresponding isomorphisms hold also in the bornological setting.
