1: 1.16 Distributions
The linear space of all test functions with the above definition of convergence is called a test function space. … Λ : 𝒟 ( I ) is called a distribution if it is a continuous linear functional on 𝒟 ( I ) , that is, it is a linear functional and for every ϕ n ϕ in 𝒟 ( I ) , … (See the definition of a distribution in §1.16(i).) …

2: Mathematical Introduction
These include, for example, multivalued functions of complex variables, for which new definitions of branch points and principal values are supplied (§§1.10(vi), 4.2(i)); the Dirac delta (or delta function), which is introduced in a more readily comprehensible way for mathematicians (§1.17); numerically satisfactory solutions of differential and difference equations (§§2.7(iv), 2.9(i)); and numerical analysis for complex variables (Chapter 3). …
