I am looking for tutorials, articles or books containing theory of distributions in context of mathematical physics. Please suggest.
Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!
I found following books useful:
- A Guide to Distribution Theory and Fourier Transforms By Robert S. Strichartz. Not very rigorous and not much content either. But good book to start from.
- Generalized Functions: Theory and Applications By Ram P. Kanwal. Not very rigorous. This book starts with chapter on Dirac delta function and then slowly builds the theory. There are many chapters on applications in Physics and Engineering.
- Equations of Mathematical Physics by V. S. Vladimirov. Rigorous and Pedantic.
In addition to the books already listed there is the nice (excellent in my opinion) textbook by Friedlander and Joshi, Introduction to the theory of Distributions
