If u is locally integrable on an open set X in R n and has compact support, the integral \(u(\phi ) = \int_X {u(x)\phi (x)\ dx}\) is absolutely convergent for every \(\phi \in C^\infty (X),\) as follows from a slight adaptation of the proof of Theorem 3.5. More generally, every distribution with compact support can be extended to a continuous linear form on \(C^\infty (X).\)
