In science:

H is Heaviside distribution.) What we have to do is to interpret the symbols inside this equation geometrically.
New ideas about multiplication of tensorial distributions
By L we mean here a regular distribution de fined by the function in the brackets, hence an object from D′ be precise and to avoid confusion in the notation, we used for the Heaviside function the symbol H f , while for the Heaviside distribution the usual symbol H .) This is nice, but rather trivial illustration.
New ideas about multiplication of tensorial distributions
Fix such chart Chk (Rn ) covering the whole manifold, that we can express Heaviside distribution in this chart through H f ( x1 ) ∈ D′ (So) (M ).
New ideas about multiplication of tensorial distributions
