Definition: continuous linear functional which assigns a real or complex number to any function of a real or complex variable belonging to the class of infinitely differentiable functions vanishing outside a bounded interval or domain

Note 1 to entry: A function D(x) can be considered as a distribution D assigning to a function f(x) the value
