Abstract

The notion of a distribution (or a generalized function—the term often used in other languages) is a comparatively recent invention, although the concept is one of the most important in mathematical areas with physical applications. By the middle of the 20th century, the theory took final shape, and distributions are commonly used by physicists and engineers today.
