A distribution is a linear and continuous map from to for an open .
We now construct the LCTVS of distributions on , denoted by . Indeed, to induce the locally convex topology, we use a family of seminorms given by
- for ,
where ranges over the natural numbers and over all compact subsets of .

Operations on distributions
When given a distribution, we can do several things with it. These include:
