Physicists describe the Dirac “function” at the point a ∈ RN as the “function” which is 0 outside a, +∞ at a and has the integral 1; mathematicians are quick to mention that there is no such (Lebesgue-integrable) function, but that remark is not so important since Laurent SCHWARTZ found a mathematical explanation for many (but not for all) strange formulas that physicists had obtained by using these non existent “functions”. DIRAC was not the first to use such a “function”, and Garret BIRKHOFF12 mentioned in [1] that 9 10 11 12 Owen RICHMOND, American mathematician, 1928–2001.

He received the Wolf Prize in 1980. He worked in Moscow, Russia. The ideas of KOLMOGOROV have the same defect as the naive idea that the effective conductivity of a mixture of materials only depends upon the proportions used, which is false in more than one dimension. In the case of small amplitude variations of the conductivities of the materials used, I have introduced H-measures for computing the quadratic correction for the effective conductivity, and in some exceptional cases the correction only depends upon proportions; one could hope that something similar would occur in the case of a weak turbulence created by small oscillations of the velocity, but there are some other difficulties which appear, and the tools for carrying this kind of analysis will be described at the end of this course.

MARSIGLI16 had already studied in 1679 the existence of an undercurrent in the depth of the Bosphorus, created by difference in salinity between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea (see Lecture 3). 8 µ), while it is not transparent to the long wavelengths corresponding to the energy radiated from the ground. 6 µ, a body at 300 K has its maximum at wavelengths 20 times larger, around 12 µ. If glass absorbs most of these long wavelengths, then it gets hotter (if it was absorbing all the radiation from the ground, it would reach the temperature 14 15 16 17 Edmund HALLEY, English mathematician, 1656–1742.
