Forschungsbeiträge Research Paper


In the infinite dimensional case it is known from a Dineen-Nachbin counterexample that the natural generalization of the Paley-Wiener-Schwartz theorem is no longer valid: The image through the Fourier transform F of the space ℰ′(E) is made of entire functions on E′ that, besides the usual inequality, satisfy a more technical condition. We define and study here a dense subspace, denoted by E(E), of ℰ(E) with a proper topology such that F (E′(E)) is made of the entire functions on E′ that satisfy only the classical inequality. For this reason this space E(E) is suited for the study of convolution and partial differential equations in spaces of C functions on locally convex spaces.
