The aim of this book consists in giving a systematic and general approach to treating meromorphic distribution-valued functions of the form where the "characteristic" (with also depends meromorphically on
Let us describe now the contents of the booklet more in detail. Chapter I consists of supplements to the theories of locally convex topological vector spaces and, in particular, of distribution spaces. Hereby, results from the books Schwartz , Robertson and Robertson , Horváth  and Treves  are taken for granted and are quoted only. We supplement these basic references by synopses on distributions on hypersurfaces (1.1), on convolution of measures and distributions (1.2, 1.3), on bilinear mappings defined on barrelled spaces (1.4), and on holomorphic functions with values in topological vector spaces (1.5, 1.6).
In Chapter II, the quasihomogeneous distribution-valued functions are defined and their properties (analytic continuation, poles, residues, finite parts) are derived (2.1, 2.2). The structure of quasihomogeneous distributions and of its Fourier transforms is elucidated in 2.5, 2.6. In the remaining sections of Chapter II, the theory is illustrated by several concrete examples originating from the quasihomogeneous polynomials Fundamental solutions of the iterated Cauchy-Riemann operator of the iterated wave operator and, more generally, of the iterated ultrahyperbolic operator are deduced therefrom (Ex. 2.7.3, Prop. 2.4.2, Prop. 2.7.6).
In Chapter III, the convolution with the quasihomogeneous distributions arising in Chapter II is treated. For this purpose, we define weighted spaces, which generalize the spaces introduced by L. Schwartz (3.1). The homogeneous distributions operate on weighted spaces by convolution, and we obtain continuity properties in dependence on the regularity of the characteristic F (see 3.2 for 3.3, 3.4 for 3.6 for As application, we describe the convolution groups of elliptic (3.3), hyperbolic (3.5), ultrahyperbolic (3.6) and quasihyperbolic operators (3.7). Finally, the convolution groups of some singular integral operators are treated in 3.8.
