Properties of the Pushforward Map on Test Functions, Measures and Distributions
(2002) In Doctoral Theses in Mathematical Sciences 2001:7. Abstract
 The subject of this thesis is the pushforward map on compactly supported distributions induced by a smooth mapping. Being the adjoint of the natural pullback operation on the class of smooth functions, the pushforward map is always welldefined, and as such it must be regarded as one of the fundamental operations of distribution theory.
This thesis has two main aims: The first of these is to give a clear exposition of the properties of the pushforward map associated with a smooth map between open subsets of Euclidean space. The second aim is to investigate the connection between the pushforward by a function f and the asymptotic behavior at infinity of oscillatory integrals with f as phase function. Particular attention... (More)  The subject of this thesis is the pushforward map on compactly supported distributions induced by a smooth mapping.
