Now, when solving differential equations, or indeed, solving any problem, it is permissible to use any methods at all, no matter how dubious, provided that once the solution has been found it can be proved to satisfy all the conditions of the problem. We shall therefore disregard theoretical subtleties when calculating w, but verify at the end that the function we have constructed really is a fundamental solution. 10) where' denotes a t-derivative. 11) then the equation is satisfied for t < s. 10) determined by conditions at t = s as follows.

10) to lead to a fundamental solUtion, and it satisfies the boundary conditions, hence it is Green's function. It is clearly symmetric, that is, g(x;y) =g(y;X). 14 Throughout this chapter we have assumed that our equations have infinitely differentiable coefficients. 11). Green's function for ordinary differential equations, however, is an ordinary continuous function, and can be discussed completely within the framework of classical analysis; the equations are not then required to have smooth coefficients.

The most familiar functions are polynomials and algebraic, trigonometric, and exponential functions. Unfortunately, polynomials, trigonometric functions, and exponential functions are not absolutely integrable, and therefore do not have Fourier transforms in the classical sense. 1) fails to converge even whenlis such a basic function as a constant. This is a very unsatisfactory state of affairs. We have seen in Chapter 1 how to interpret some divergent integrals·using distribution theory. We might therefore expect to get a better theory of the Fourier transform in terms of generalised functions.
