# On the generalized Hartley and Hartley-Hilbert transformations

## Abstract

In this paper, we extend Hartley and Hartley-Hilbert transformations (HT and HHT, respectively) to a certain space of tempered distributions. We then establish a certain convolution theorem for the HHT. The convolution theorem, obtained in this way, has been shown to possess a factorization property of Fourier convolution type. Proving the new convolution theorem for the HHT, by the usual convolution product, the transform is investigated on a certain space of Boehmians. Its properties of linearity and convergence are also discussed in the context of Boehmian spaces.

## 1 Test function spaces and distributions

The idea of specifying a function not by its values but by its behavior as a functional on some space of testing functions is a concept that is quite familiar to scientists and engineers through their experience with the classical Fourier and Laplace transformations. Test functions, on which distributions operate, cannot in general be written down in an explicit form. The advantage of distributions over classical functions is that the distribution concept provides a better mechanism for analyzing certain physical phenomena than the function concept does because, for one reason, various entities such as the delta function δ can be correctly described as a distribution but not as a function. Furthermore, physical quantities that can be adequately represented as a function can also be characterized as a distribution. In addition, distributions attain an infinite number of derivatives and those derivatives always exist, which is not applied to functions.

The space of testing functions, denoted by , consists of all complex-valued functions φ that are infinitely smooth and zero outside some finite interval. The set of continuous linear forms (conjugates or dual space) on constitutes a space of distributions, denoted by ${\mathcal{D}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$.

A distribution f in ${\mathcal{D}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ can be represented, corresponding to $f\left(t\right)$, through the convergent integral

$〈f,\phi 〉=〈f\left(t\right),\phi \left(t\right)〉\stackrel{\mathrm{\Delta }}{=}{\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}f\left(t\right)\phi \left(t\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dt.$

The space of complex-valued smooth functions is denoted by and its dual space is denoted by ${\mathcal{E}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$.

By we denote the space of all complex-valued functions φ that are infinitely smooth and are such that as $|t|\to \mathrm{\infty }$, they and their partial derivatives decay to zero faster than all powers of $|t{|}^{-1}$. Elements of are called testing functions of rapid descents. is indeed a linear space.

If $\varphi \in \mathcal{S}$, then its partial derivatives are in . In fact, is dense in and is dense in . The dual space of is called the space of tempered distributions and denoted by ${\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ with a property that ${\mathcal{E}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}\subset {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}\subset {\mathcal{D}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$, ${\mathcal{E}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ being the (conjugate of ) space of distributions of compact support. For the convergence on , and and their topologies, we refer to [1, 2].

## 2 HT and HHT of tempered distributions

### 2.1 Introduction to HT and HH transforms

The Hartley transform (HT) was introduced originally by Hartley 1942 as an integral transform with a number of properties similar to those of the Fourier transform (FT). The HT of a function over R is a real function defined by [3, 4]

$\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(x\right)={\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}f\left(y\right)\left(cos\left(xy\right)+sin\left(xy\right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dy$
(1)

or

$\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(x\right)={\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}f\left(y\right)\left(cos\left(2\pi xy\right)+sin\left(2\pi xy\right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dy.$
(2)

Some properties of HT are:

1. (i)

Shift: $\left(\mathtt{H}f\left(y-{y}_{o}\right)\right)\left(x\right)=cos\left(2\pi xy{y}_{o}\right)\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(x\right)+sin\left(2\pi x{y}_{o}\right)\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(-x\right)$.

2. (ii)

Modulation: $\mathtt{H}\left(cos\left(2\pi {x}_{o}y\right)f\left(y\right)\right)\left(x\right)=\frac{1}{2}\mathtt{H}f\left(x-{x}_{o}\right)+\frac{1}{2}\mathtt{H}f\left(x-{x}_{o}\right)$.

3. (iii)

Derivative: $\mathtt{H}\left(\frac{d}{dy}f\left(y\right)\right)\left(x\right)=-2\pi x\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(-x\right)$.

4. (iv)

Convolution: The convolution theorem of HT is given as

$\begin{array}{rl}\left(\mathtt{H}\left(f\ast g\right)\left(t\right)\right)\left(x\right)=& \frac{1}{2}\left(\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(x\right)\left(\mathtt{H}g\right)\left(x\right)+\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(-x\right)\left(\mathtt{H}g\right)\left(x\right)\right)\\ +\frac{1}{2}\left(\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(x\right)\left(\mathtt{H}g\right)\left(-x\right)-\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(-x\right)\left(\mathtt{H}g\right)\left(x\right)\right).\end{array}$
(3)

The Hilbert transform via the Hartley transform, the Hartley-Hilbert transform (HHT), is defined by 

$\left(\mathtt{HH}f\right)\left(x\right)\stackrel{\mathrm{\Delta }}{=}\frac{1}{\pi }{\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(y\right)cos\left(xy\right)+{\mathtt{H}}^{e}f\left(y\right)sin\left(xy\right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dy,$
(4)

where

${\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(y\right)=\frac{\mathtt{H}f\left(y\right)-\mathtt{H}f\left(-y\right)}{2},\phantom{\rule{2em}{0ex}}{\mathtt{H}}^{e}f\left(y\right)=\frac{\mathtt{H}f\left(y\right)+\mathtt{H}f\left(-y\right)}{2}$
(5)

are the odd and even components of the HT.

The HHT, which permits some attractive applications in geophysics and signal processing, has been extended to a specific space of generalized functions (Boehmian spaces) in .

### 2.2 First convolution theorem of HHT

Convolutions of integral transforms which possess the factorization property of Fourier convolution type have become of interest to many authors and have been applied to solving systems of integral equations. In , we studied the convolution theorem for HHT in some detail. In this paper we make the idea more precise. We define some generalized convolution of HHT that permits a factorization property of Fourier convolution type.

Let U be a linear space and V be a commutative algebra on the field K. Let $\mathtt{T}\in \mathtt{L}\left(\mathtt{U},\cdot \right)$ be a linear operator from U to V. A bilinear map $\star :\mathtt{U}×\mathtt{U}:\to \mathtt{U}$ is called the convolution for T if $\mathtt{T}\left(\star \left(f,g\right)\right)=\mathtt{T}\left(f\right)\mathtt{T}\left(g\right)$ for any $f,g\in \mathtt{U}$. The image $\star \left(f,g\right)$ is denoted by $f\star g$.

Theorem 2.1 (First convolution theorem of HHT)

Let HH f, HH g be the HHT s of f and g, respectively, then

$\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star g\right)\left(x\right)=\left(\mathtt{HH}f\right)\left(x\right)\left(\mathtt{HH}g\right)\left(x\right),$
(6)

where

$\left(f\star g\right)\left(t\right)={\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left(f\left(t\right){\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\left(\eta \right)cos\left(x\eta \right)+f\left(t\right){\mathtt{H}}^{e}g\left(\eta \right)sin\left(x\eta \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\eta .$

Proof Under the hypothesis of the theorem, we write

$\begin{array}{r}\left(\mathtt{HH}f\right)\left(x\right)\left(\mathtt{HH}g\right)\left(x\right)\\ \phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}={\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left(\left({\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\right)\left(\xi \right)cos\left(x\xi \right)+\left({\mathtt{H}}^{e}f\right)\left(\xi \right)sin\left(x\xi \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi \\ \phantom{\rule{2em}{0ex}}×{\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left(\left({\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\right)\left(\eta \right)cos\left(x\eta \right)+\left({\mathtt{H}}^{e}g\right)\left(\eta \right)sin\left(x\eta \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\eta \\ \phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}={\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\left(\eta \right)cos\left(x\eta \right)+{\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{e}g\left(\eta \right)sin\left(x\eta \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\eta \right)cosx\xi \phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi \\ \phantom{\rule{2em}{0ex}}+{\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{e}f\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\left(\eta \right)cos\left(x\eta \right)+{\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{e}g\left(\eta \right)sin\left(x\eta \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\eta \right)sinx\xi \phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi ,\end{array}$

which can be written as

$\left(\mathtt{HH}f\right)\left(x\right)\left(\mathtt{HH}g\right)\left(x\right)={\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left(\mathtt{A}\left(\xi \right)cos\left(x\xi \right)+\mathtt{B}\left(\xi \right)sin\left(x\xi \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi ,$

where

$\mathtt{A}\left(\xi \right)={\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\left(\eta \right)cos\left(x\eta \right)+{\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{e}g\left(\eta \right)sin\left(x\eta \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\eta$

and

$\mathtt{B}\left(\xi \right)={\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{e}f\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\left(\eta \right)cos\left(x\eta \right)+{\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{e}g\left(\eta \right)sin\left(x\eta \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\eta .$

Then, with a simple modification, we get

$\begin{array}{rl}\mathtt{A}\left(\xi \right)& ={\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left(f\left(t\right){\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\left(\eta \right)cos\left(x\eta \right)+f\left(t\right){\mathtt{H}}^{e}g\left(\eta \right)sin\left(x\eta \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\eta \right)sin\left(t\xi \right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi \\ ={\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left(f\star g\right)\left(t\right)sin\left(t\xi \right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi ,\end{array}$

where

$\left(f\star g\right)\left(t\right)={\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left(f\left(t\right){\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\left(\eta \right)cos\left(x\eta \right)+f\left(t\right){\mathtt{H}}^{e}g\left(\eta \right)sin\left(x\eta \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\eta .$
(7)

Similarly, we proceed for $\mathtt{B}\left(\xi \right)$ to get $\mathtt{B}\left(\xi \right)={\mathtt{H}}^{e}\left(f\star g\right)\left(\xi \right)$, $f\star g$ is the integral equation given in (7).

Hence the theorem. □

Theorem 2.2 Let f, g and h be ${L}^{1}$ functions, then:

1. (i)

$\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star g\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left(g\star f\right)$.

2. (ii)

$\mathtt{HH}\left(\left(f\star g\right)\star h\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star \left(g\star h\right)\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left(g\star \left(f\star h\right)\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left(h\star \left(f\star g\right)\right)$.

3. (iii)

$\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star \left(g+h\right)\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star g\right)+\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star h\right)$.

4. (iv)

$\mathtt{HH}\left(f+\left(g\star h\right)\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left(\left(f+g\right)\star \left(f\star h\right)\right)$.

Proof (i) Let $f,g\in {L}^{1}$. By the aid of Theorem 2.1, we get

$\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star g\right)\left(x\right)=\left(\mathtt{HH}f\right)\left(x\right)\left(\mathtt{HH}g\right)\left(x\right)=\left(\mathtt{HH}g\right)\left(x\right)\left(\mathtt{HH}f\right)\left(x\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left(g\star f\right)\left(x\right).$

Proof of (ii) is analogous to that of the first part.

1. (iii)

Let $f,g\in {L}^{1}$, then using the definition of HHT and that of , we get

$\begin{array}{r}\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star \left(g+h\right)\right)\left(x\right)\\ \phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}=\frac{1}{\pi }{\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{o}\left(f\star \left(g+h\right)\right)\left(y\right)cos\left(xy\right)+{\mathtt{H}}^{e}\left(f\star \left(g+h\right)\right)\left(y\right)sin\left(xy\right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dy\\ \phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}=\frac{1}{\pi }{\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{o}\left(f\star g+f\star h\right)\left(y\right)cos\left(xy\right)+{\mathtt{H}}^{e}\left(f\star g+f\star h\right)\left(y\right)sin\left(xy\right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dy.\end{array}$

Hence, the properties of HT odd and even parts, ${\mathtt{H}}^{o}$, ${\mathtt{H}}^{e}$, and that of the integral operator ∫ imply that $\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star \left(g+h\right)\right)\left(x\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left(f\star g+f\star h\right)\left(x\right)$.

Proof of (iv) is analogous to that given for part (ii).

This completes the proof. □

Next is a straightforward corollary of Theorem 2.2.

Corollary 2.3 Let f, g and h be ${L}^{1}$ functions, then:

1. (i)

$f\star g=g\star f$.

2. (ii)

$\left(f\star g\right)\star h=f\star \left(g\star h\right)$.

3. (iii)

$f\star \left(g+h\right)=f\star g+f\star h$.

4. (iv)

$f+\left(g\star h\right)=\left(f+g\right)\star \left(f\star h\right)$.

### 2.3 HT and HHT of distributions

In this subsection we discuss HT and HHT on a tempered distribution space.

Theorem 2.4 If f is in , then H f is also in .

Proof If $f\in \mathcal{S}$, then HT certainly exists. Differentiating, in the ordinary sense, the right-hand side of the integral equation

$\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(x\right)={\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}f\left(\xi \right)\left(cos\left(x\xi \right)+sin\left(x\xi \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi$
(8)

with respect to x yields

$\frac{d}{dx}\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(x\right)={\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\xi f\left(\xi \right)\left(cos\left(x\xi \right)-sin\left(x\xi \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi .$
(9)

This is because the right-hand side of (9) converges uniformly for each x.

Indeed, integrating by parts m times and by the fact that

$\frac{{d}^{m}}{{d}^{m}\xi }\left({\xi }^{k}f\left(\xi \right)\right)\to 0$

as $\xi \to \mathrm{\infty }$ for each $m\in \mathtt{N}\cup \left\{0\right\}$, we get

$|{x}^{m}\frac{{d}^{k}}{{d}^{k}x}\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(x\right)|\le {\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}|\frac{{d}^{m}}{{d}^{m}\xi }\left({\xi }^{k}f\left(\xi \right)\right)|\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi .$
(10)

Since $f\in \mathcal{S}$, the integral on the right-hand side of (10) is bounded by constants, say ${A}_{mk}$. Hence

$|{x}^{m}\frac{{d}^{k}}{{d}^{k}x}\left(\mathtt{H}f\right)\left(x\right)|\le {A}_{mk},\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}-\mathrm{\infty }

for every pair of non-negative m and k. This completes the proof. □

Corollary 2.5 If f is in , then ${\mathtt{H}}^{o}f$ and ${\mathtt{H}}^{e}f$ are in .

Corollary 2.6 If f is in , then HH f is also in .

Proof By Corollary 2.5, ${\mathtt{H}}^{o}f,{\mathtt{H}}^{e}f\in \mathcal{S}$. Thus, the linearity of and the fact that $\int \varphi \left(\xi \right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi \in \mathcal{S}$ for every $\varphi \in \mathcal{S}$ imply $\mathtt{HH}f\in \mathcal{S}$.

Let $f\in {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$, then, by the aid of Corollary 2.5 and Corollary 2.6, we are led to the following definitions:

$〈\mathtt{H}f\left(x\right),\phi \left(x\right)〉=〈f\left(x\right),\mathtt{H}\phi \left(x\right)〉$
(11)

and

$〈\mathtt{HH}f\left(x\right),\phi \left(x\right)〉=〈f\left(x\right),\mathtt{HH}\phi \left(x\right)〉.$
(12)

The right-hand sides of (11) and (12) are well defined and, therefore, from the left-hand sides of (11) and (12), we get that

$\mathtt{H}f\left(x\right),\mathtt{HH}f\left(x\right)\in {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$

for each $f\in {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$.

This can be stated in similar words as: HT and HHT of tempered distributions are tempered distributions. □

Corollary 2.7 If $\varphi \in \mathcal{S}$, then $\left(\mathtt{H}\varphi \right)\left(\mathtt{HH}\varphi \right)\in \mathcal{S}$.

Theorem 2.8 Let $f\in {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$, then H f and HH f are both linear mappings from ${\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ into ${\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$.

Proof Let $f,g\in {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$and $\phi \in \mathcal{S}$, $\alpha \in \mathtt{R}$ be arbitrary, then

$\begin{array}{rcl}〈\alpha \mathtt{H}\left(f+g\right)\left(x\right),\phi \left(x\right)〉& =& 〈\alpha \left(f+g\right)\left(x\right),\mathtt{H}\phi \left(x\right)〉\\ =& \alpha 〈f\left(x\right),\mathtt{H}\phi \left(x\right)〉+\alpha 〈g\left(x\right),\mathtt{H}\phi \left(x\right)〉\\ =& \alpha 〈\mathtt{H}f\left(x\right),\phi \left(x\right)〉+\alpha 〈\mathtt{H}g\left(x\right),\phi \left(x\right)〉.\end{array}$

Similarly, we proceed for HH f, $\mathrm{\forall }f\in {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$. Hence the theorem. □

## 3 Generalized distributions

One of the youngest generalizations of functions, and more particularly of distributions, is the theory of Boehmians. The name Boehmian space is given to all objects defined by an abstract construction similar to that of field of quotients. The construction applied to function spaces yields various spaces of generalized functions.

For a linear space Y and a subspace X of Y, assume that to all pairs $\left(f,\varphi \right)$, $\left(g,\psi \right)$ of elements, $f,g\in \mathtt{Y}$, $\varphi ,\psi \in \mathtt{X}$, the products $f\ast \varphi$, $g\ast \psi$ are assigned such that the following conditions are satisfied:

1. (1)

$\varphi \ast \psi \in \mathtt{X}$ and $\varphi \ast \psi =\psi \ast \varphi$.

2. (2)

$\left(f\ast \varphi \right)\ast \psi =f\ast \left(\varphi \ast \psi \right)$.

3. (3)

$\left(f+g\right)\ast \varphi =f\ast \varphi +g\ast \varphi$

4. (4)

$k\left(f\ast \varphi \right)=\left(kf\right)\ast \varphi =f\ast \left(k\varphi \right)$, $k\in \mathtt{R}$.

Let Δ be a family of sequences from X such that for $f,g\in \mathtt{Y}$ then:

1. (5)

If $\left({ϵ}_{n}\right)\in \mathrm{\Delta }$ and $f\ast {ϵ}_{n}=g\ast {ϵ}_{n}$, $n=1,2,\dots$ , then $f=g$.

2. (6)

$\left({ϵ}_{n}\right),\left({\tau }_{n}\right)\in \mathrm{\Delta }⇒\left({ϵ}_{n}\ast {\tau }_{n}\right)\in \mathrm{\Delta }$.

The elements of Δ are called delta sequences.

Consider the class A of pairs of sequences defined by

$\mathtt{A}=\left\{\left(\left({f}_{n}\right),\left({ϵ}_{n}\right)\right):\left({f}_{n}\right)\subseteq {\mathtt{Y}}^{\mathtt{N}},\left({ϵ}_{n}\right)\in \mathrm{\Delta }\right\}$

for each $n\in \mathtt{N}$.

The pair $\left(\left({f}_{n}\right),\left({ϵ}_{n}\right)\right)\in \mathtt{A}$ is said to be quotient of sequences, denoted by $\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}$, if

${f}_{n}\ast {ϵ}_{m}={f}_{m}\ast {ϵ}_{n},\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathrm{\forall }n,m\in \mathtt{N}.$

Two quotients of sequences $\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}$ and $\frac{{g}_{n}}{{\tau }_{n}}$ are said to be equivalent, $\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}\sim \frac{{g}_{n}}{{\tau }_{n}}$, if

${f}_{n}\ast {ϵ}_{m}={g}_{m}\ast {\tau }_{n},\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathrm{\forall }n,m\in \mathtt{N}.$

The relation is an equivalent relation on A and hence splits A into equivalence classes. The equivalence class containing $\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}$ is denoted by $\left[\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}\right]$. These equivalence classes are called Boehmians and the space of all Boehmians is denoted by $\mathtt{B}\left(\mathtt{Y},\mathtt{X},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$, see .

The sum and multiplication by a scalar of two Boehmians can be defined in a natural way

$\left[\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}\right]+\left[\frac{{g}_{n}}{{\tau }_{n}}\right]=\left[\frac{{f}_{n}\ast {\tau }_{n}+{g}_{n}\ast {ϵ}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}\ast {\tau }_{n}}\right]$

and

The operation and differentiation are defined by $\left[\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}\right]\ast \left[\frac{{g}_{n}}{{\tau }_{n}}\right]=\left[\frac{{f}_{n}\ast {g}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}\ast {\tau }_{n}}\right]$ and ${\mathcal{D}}^{\alpha }\left[\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}\right]=\left[\frac{{\mathcal{D}}^{\alpha }{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}\right]$. Many times, Y is equipped with the notion of convergence. The intrinsic relationship between the notion of convergence and the product are given by:

1. (1)

If ${f}_{n}\to f$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$ in Y and, $\varphi \in \mathtt{X}$ is any fixed element, then

2. (2)

If ${f}_{n}\to f$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$ in Y and $\left({ϵ}_{n}\right)\in \mathrm{\Delta }$, then ${f}_{n}\ast {ϵ}_{n}\to f$ in Y as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$.

The operation is extended to $\mathtt{B}\left(\mathtt{Y},\mathtt{X},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)×\mathtt{X}$ by the following definition.

Definition 3.1 If $\left[\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}\right]\in \mathtt{B}\left(\mathtt{Y},\mathtt{X},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ and $\varphi \in \mathtt{X}$, then $\left[\frac{{f}_{n}}{{ϵ}_{n}}\right]\ast \varphi =\left[\frac{{f}_{n}\ast \varphi }{{ϵ}_{n}}\right]$.

In $\mathtt{B}\left(\mathtt{Y},\mathtt{X},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$, two types of convergence, δ and Δ convergence, are defined as follows.

Definition 3.2 A sequence of Boehmians $\left({\beta }_{n}\right)$ in $\mathtt{B}\left(\mathtt{Y},\mathtt{X},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ is said to be δ-convergent to a Boehmian β in $\mathtt{B}\left(\mathtt{Y},\mathtt{X},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$, denoted by ${\beta }_{n}\stackrel{\delta }{\to }\beta$, if there exists a delta sequence $\left({ϵ}_{n}\right)$ such that $\left({\beta }_{n}\ast {ϵ}_{n}\right),\left(\beta \ast {ϵ}_{n}\right)\in \mathtt{Y}$, $\mathrm{\forall }k,n\in \mathtt{N}$, and

The following lemma is equivalent to the statement of δ-convergence.

Lemma 3.3 ${\beta }_{n}\stackrel{\delta }{\to }\beta$ ($n\to \mathrm{\infty }$) in $\mathtt{B}\left(\mathtt{Y},\mathtt{X},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ if and only if there are ${f}_{n,k},{f}_{k}\in \mathtt{Y}$ and ${ϵ}_{k}\in \mathrm{\Delta }$ such that ${\beta }_{n}=\left[\frac{{f}_{n,k}}{{ϵ}_{k}}\right]$, $\beta =\left[\frac{{f}_{k}}{{ϵ}_{k}}\right]$ and for each $k\in \mathtt{N}$,

${f}_{n,k}\to {f}_{k}\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathit{\text{as}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}n\to \mathrm{\infty }\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathit{\text{in}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathtt{Y}.$

Definition 3.4 A sequence of Boehmians $\left({\beta }_{n}\right)$ in $\mathtt{B}\left(\mathtt{Y},\mathtt{X},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ is said to be Δ-convergent to a Boehmian β in $\mathtt{B}\left(\mathtt{Y},\mathtt{X},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$, denoted by ${\beta }_{n}\stackrel{\mathrm{\Delta }}{\to }\beta$, if there exists an $\left({ϵ}_{n}\right)\in \mathrm{\Delta }$ such that $\left({\beta }_{n}-\beta \right)\ast {ϵ}_{n}\in \mathtt{Y}$, $\mathrm{\forall }n\in \mathtt{N}$, and $\left({\beta }_{n}-\beta \right)\ast {ϵ}_{n}\to 0$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$ in Y. See, for example, [7, 912] and .

## 4 The spaces ${\mathtt{B}}_{1}\left({\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }},\mathcal{S},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ and ${\mathtt{B}}_{2}\left({\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3},•\right)$

Theorem 4.1 (Second convolution theorem of HHT)

Let f and g be ${\mathtt{L}}^{1}$ functions, then

$\mathtt{HH}\left(f\ast g\right)\left(x\right)=2\mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}f\mathtt{H}g\right)\right)\left(x\right),$

where is the usual convolution product of f and g, see .

Proof Using the definition of HHT implies

$\mathtt{HH}\left(f\ast g\right)\left(x\right)={\int }_{0}^{\mathrm{\infty }}\left(\mathtt{A}\left(\xi \right)cos\left(x\xi \right)+\mathtt{B}\left(\xi \right)sin\left(x\xi \right)\right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}d\xi$
(13)

with $\mathtt{A}\left(\xi \right)={\mathtt{H}}^{o}\left(f\ast g\right)\left(\xi \right)$ and $\mathtt{B}\left(\xi \right)={\mathtt{H}}^{e}\left(f\ast g\right)\left(\xi \right)$.

Fubini’s theorem implies

$\mathtt{A}\left(\xi \right)={\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}f\left(z\right){\int }_{-\mathrm{\infty }}^{\mathrm{\infty }}g\left(t-z\right)sin\left(t\xi \right)\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dt\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}dz.$

The substitution $t-z=y$ and the fact

$sin\left(y+z\right)\xi =sin\left(y\xi \right)cos\left(z\xi \right)+cos\left(y\xi \right)sin\left(z\xi \right)$

imply

$\mathtt{A}\left(\xi \right)={\mathtt{H}}^{e}f\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(\xi \right)+{\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(\xi \right){\mathtt{H}}^{e}f\left(\xi \right).$
(14)

Invoking

$\begin{array}{c}{\mathtt{H}}^{e}f\left(\xi \right)=\frac{\mathtt{H}f\left(\xi \right)+\mathtt{H}f\left(-\xi \right)}{2},\phantom{\rule{2em}{0ex}}{\mathtt{H}}^{o}f\left(\xi \right)=\frac{\mathtt{H}f\left(\xi \right)-\mathtt{H}f\left(-\xi \right)}{2},\hfill \\ {\mathtt{H}}^{e}g\left(\xi \right)=\frac{\mathtt{H}g\left(\xi \right)+\mathtt{H}g\left(-\xi \right)}{2},\phantom{\rule{2em}{0ex}}{\mathtt{H}}^{o}g\left(\xi \right)=\frac{\mathtt{H}g\left(\xi \right)-\mathtt{H}g\left(-\xi \right)}{2}\hfill \end{array}$

in (14) then multiplying and canceling similar quantities yield

$\mathtt{A}\left(\xi \right)=\left(\mathtt{H}f\mathtt{H}g\right)\left(\xi \right)+\left(\mathtt{H}f\mathtt{H}g\right)\left(-\xi \right)=\mathtt{H}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}f\mathtt{H}g\right)\right)\left(z\right)+\mathtt{H}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}f\mathtt{H}g\right)\right)\left(-z\right)$
(15)

or

$\mathtt{A}\left(\xi \right)=2{\mathtt{H}}^{e}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}f\mathtt{H}g\right)\right)\left(\xi \right).$
(16)

Similarly, we proceed for $\mathtt{B}\left(\xi \right)$ to get

$\mathtt{B}\left(\xi \right)=2{\mathtt{H}}^{o}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}f\mathtt{H}g\right)\right)\left(\xi \right).$
(17)

Hence, invoking (16) and (17) in (13), our theorem follows. □

Denote by ${\mathtt{B}}_{1}\left({\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }},\mathcal{S},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ the usual Boehmian space with the convolution product as an operation, ${\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ as a group, as a subgroup of ${\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ ( dense in ${\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$) and, Δ as the collection of delta sequences from such that

Let us consider another space of Boehmians:

Denote by ${\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$ the space of HHT s of distributions from ${\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$. Indeed, ${\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$ is also a subspace of ${\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ by (12). A member ${\xi }_{n}\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$ is said to converge in ${\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$ to a value ξ if there are ${\tau }_{n},\tau \in {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ such that ${\tau }_{n}$ reaches τ for large values of n.

Also, denote by ${\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2}$ the set of HHT s of test functions from , then ${\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2}$ is a subspace of ${\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$ by Corollary 2.6. In similar notations ${\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3}=\mathtt{HH}\mathrm{\Delta }$.

Next, let us consider an operation $•:{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}×{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2}\to {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$ defined by

$•\left(\xi ,\varphi \right)\left(x\right)=2\mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}{\xi }^{\ast }\mathtt{H}{\varphi }^{\ast }\right)\right)\left(x\right)$
(18)

for $\xi =\mathtt{HH}{\xi }^{\ast }$, $\varphi =\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }^{\ast }$.

Theorem 4.2 Let $\xi \in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$ and $\varphi \in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2}$, then for $\xi =\mathtt{HH}{\xi }^{\ast }$ and $\varphi =\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }^{\ast }$,

$•\left(\xi ,\varphi \right)=\mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }^{\ast }\right).$

Proof For every $\xi \in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$, $\varphi \in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2}$, we get

$\begin{array}{rcl}•\left(\xi ,\varphi \right)\left(x\right)& =& 2\mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}{\xi }^{\ast }\mathtt{H}{\varphi }^{\ast }\right)\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right),\end{array}$
(19)

where $\xi =\mathtt{HH}{\xi }^{\ast }$, $\varphi =\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }^{\ast }$. This proves the theorem. □

Theorem 4.3 Let ${\varphi }_{1},{\varphi }_{2}\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2}$, then $•\left({\varphi }_{1},{\varphi }_{2}\right)=•\left({\varphi }_{1},{\varphi }_{2}\right)$.

Proof Using (17) we get

$•\left({\varphi }_{1},{\varphi }_{2}\right)\left(x\right)=2\mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}{\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }\mathtt{H}{\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }\right)\right)\left(x\right),$

where ${\varphi }_{1}=\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }$, ${\varphi }_{2}=\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }$.

By (18) and Theorem 4.2, we get

$\begin{array}{rcl}•\left({\varphi }_{1},{\varphi }_{2}\right)\left(x\right)& =& \mathtt{HH}\left({\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& 2\mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}{\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }\mathtt{H}{\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }\right)\right)\left(x\right)=•\left({\varphi }_{2},{\varphi }_{1}\right)\left(x\right).\end{array}$

Hence the theorem. □

Theorem 4.4 Let ${\xi }_{1},{\xi }_{2},{\xi }_{n},\xi \in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$ and $\varphi \in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2}$, then:

1. (i)

$•\left(k{\xi }_{1},\varphi \right)\left(x\right)=•\left({\xi }_{1},k\varphi \right)\left(x\right)=k\left(•\left({\xi }_{1},\varphi \right)\left(x\right)\right)$, $k\in \mathtt{R}$.

2. (ii)

$•\left({\xi }_{1}+{\xi }_{2},\varphi \right)\left(x\right)=•\left({\xi }_{1},\varphi \right)\left(x\right)+•\left({\xi }_{2},\varphi \right)\left(x\right)$.

3. (iii)

$•\left({\xi }_{n},\varphi \right)\left(x\right)\to •\left(\xi ,\varphi \right)\left(x\right)$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$.

Proof (i) The linearity of HHT s and (17) implies

Similarly,

$•\left(k\xi ,\varphi \right)\left(x\right)=k\left(•\left({\xi }_{1},\varphi \right)\left(x\right)\right).$

The proof of (ii) and (iii) follows from simple computations. The proof is therefore completed. □

Theorem 4.5 Let $\left({\alpha }_{n}\right),\left({\epsilon }_{n}\right)\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3}$, then $•\left({\alpha }_{n},{\epsilon }_{n}\right)\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3}$.

Proof For $\left({\alpha }_{n}\right),\left({\epsilon }_{n}\right)\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3}$,

$\begin{array}{rcl}•\left({\alpha }_{n},{\epsilon }_{n}\right)\left(x\right)& =& 2\mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}{\alpha }_{n}^{\ast }\mathtt{H}{\epsilon }_{n}^{\ast }\right)\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({\alpha }_{n}^{\ast }\ast {\epsilon }_{n}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right).\end{array}$

Since ${\alpha }_{n}^{\ast }\ast {\epsilon }_{n}^{\ast }\in \mathrm{\Delta }$, we get

$•\left({\alpha }_{n},{\epsilon }_{n}\right)\left(x\right)\in \mathtt{HH}\mathrm{\Delta }.$

The proof is completed. □

Theorem 4.6 Let $\xi \in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$, ${\varphi }_{1},{\varphi }_{2}\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2}$, then

$•\left(•\left(\xi ,{\varphi }_{1}\right),{\varphi }_{2}\right)\left(x\right)=•\left(\xi ,•\left({\varphi }_{1},{\varphi }_{2}\right)\right)\left(x\right).$

Proof Follows from similar computations to those above.

In detail, for ${\varphi }_{1}=\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }$, ${\varphi }_{2}=\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }$ and $\xi =\mathtt{HH}{\xi }^{\ast }$, we see that

$\begin{array}{rcl}•\left(•\left(\xi ,{\varphi }_{1}\right),{\varphi }_{2}\right)\left(x\right)& =& \mathtt{HH}\left(•{\left(\xi ,{\varphi }_{1}\right)}^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({\left(\mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }\right)\right)}^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left(\left({\xi }^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }\right)\ast {\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }^{\ast }\ast \left({\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }\right)\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }^{\ast }\ast \left({\varphi }_{1}^{\ast }\ast {\varphi }_{2}^{\ast }\right)\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& •\left(•\xi ,\left({\varphi }_{1},{\varphi }_{2}\right)\right)\left(x\right).\end{array}$

Hence our theorem is completely proved. □

Theorem 4.7 Let ${\xi }_{1},{\xi }_{2}\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$ and $\left({\delta }_{n}\right)\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3}$ and $•\left({\xi }_{1},{\delta }_{n}\right)\left(x\right)=•\left({\xi }_{2},{\delta }_{n}\right)\left(x\right)$, then ${\xi }_{1}={\xi }_{2}$.

Proof Assume that $•\left({\xi }_{1},{\delta }_{n}\right)\left(x\right)=•\left({\xi }_{2},{\delta }_{n}\right)\left(x\right)$, then

$2\mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}{\xi }_{1}^{\ast }\mathtt{H}{\delta }_{n}^{\ast }\right)\right)\left(x\right)=2\mathtt{HH}\left(\mathtt{H}{\xi }_{2}^{\ast }\mathtt{H}{\delta }_{n}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right).$

Hence, $\mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }_{1}^{\ast }\ast {\delta }_{n}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }_{2}^{\ast }\ast {\delta }_{n}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right)$. Allowing $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$ implies

$\mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }_{1}^{\ast }\right)=\mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }_{2}^{\ast }\right).$

Hence ${\xi }_{1}={\xi }_{2}$. This completes the proof. □

Theorem 4.8 Let $\left({\delta }_{n}\right)\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3}$ and $\xi \in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$, then

$•\left(\xi ,{\delta }_{n}\right)\to \xi \phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathit{\text{as}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}n\to \mathrm{\infty }.$

Proof Since $\xi \in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1}$, $\left({\delta }_{n}\right)\in {\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3}$, there are ${\xi }^{\ast }\in \mathcal{S}$, ${\delta }_{n}^{\ast }\in \mathrm{\Delta }$ such that $\mathtt{HH}{\xi }^{\ast }=\xi$ and ${\delta }_{n}=\mathtt{HH}{\delta }_{n}^{\ast }$. Hence

$\begin{array}{rcl}•\left(\xi ,{\delta }_{n}\right)\left(x\right)& =& 2\mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}{\xi }^{\ast }\mathtt{H}{\delta }_{n}^{\ast }\right)\right)\left(x\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({\xi }^{\ast }\ast {\delta }_{n}^{\ast }\right)\left(x\right)\to \mathtt{HH}{\xi }^{\ast }=\xi \end{array}$

as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$ since ${\delta }_{n}^{\ast }\in \mathrm{\Delta }$.

Thus the theorem. □

The Boehmian space ${\mathtt{B}}_{2}\left({\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3},•\right)$ is completely established.

A typical element in ${\mathtt{B}}_{2}\left({\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3},•\right)$ is given as

$\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}\right].$

The concept of quotients of sequences is justified by

$\begin{array}{rcl}•\left(\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n},\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{m}\right)& =& 2\mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}{f}_{n}\mathtt{H}{\varphi }_{m}\right)\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({f}_{n}\ast {\varphi }_{m}\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({f}_{m}\ast {\varphi }_{n}\right)\\ =& \mathtt{HH}\left({\mathtt{H}}^{-1}\left(\mathtt{H}{f}_{m}\mathtt{H}{\varphi }_{n}\right)\right)\\ =& •\left(\mathtt{HH}{f}_{m},\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}\right).\end{array}$

Hence, $•\left(\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n},\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{m}\right)=•\left(\mathtt{HH}{f}_{m},\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}\right)$.

Two quotients $\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}$ and $\frac{\mathtt{HH}{g}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\tau }_{n}}$ are said to be equivalent in the sense of ${\mathtt{B}}_{2}\left({\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3},•\right)$ if

$•\left(\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n},\mathtt{HH}{\tau }_{m}\right)=•\left(\mathtt{HH}{g}_{m},\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}\right).$

Sum and multiplication by a scalar of two Boehmians can be defined in a natural way

$\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}\right]+\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{g}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\tau }_{n}}\right]=\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}•\mathtt{HH}{\tau }_{n}+\mathtt{HH}{g}_{n}•\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}•\mathtt{HH}{\tau }_{n}}\right]$

and

The operation • and differentiation are defined by

$\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}\right]•\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{g}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\tau }_{n}}\right]=\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}•\mathtt{HH}{g}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}•\mathtt{HH}{\tau }_{n}}\right]$

and

${\mathcal{D}}^{\alpha }\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}\right]=\left[\frac{{\mathcal{D}}^{\alpha }\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}\right].$

## 5 HHT of Boehmians

Let us define the EHHT of a Boehmian $\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}\right]\in {\mathtt{B}}_{1}\left({\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }},\mathcal{S},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ by

$\mathrm{\Lambda }\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}\right]=\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{n}}\right]\in {\mathtt{B}}_{2}\left({\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3},•\right).$
(20)

It is clear that EHHT is well defined.

Theorem 5.1 EHHT is linear.

Theorem 5.2 EHHT is one-to-one.

Theorem 5.3 EHHT is continuous with respect to δ convergence.

Proof Let ${\beta }_{n}\stackrel{\delta }{\to }\beta$ in ${\mathtt{B}}_{1}\left({\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }},\mathcal{S},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$. We show that $\mathrm{\Lambda }{\beta }_{n}\to \mathrm{\Lambda }\beta$ in ${\mathtt{B}}_{2}\left({\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3},•\right)$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$.

For each ${\beta }_{n},\beta \in {\mathtt{B}}_{1}\left({\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }},\mathcal{S},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ we, by , can find ${f}_{n,k},{f}_{k}\in {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ such that

${\beta }_{n}=\left[\frac{{f}_{n,k}}{{\varphi }_{k}}\right]$

and $\beta =\left[\frac{{f}_{k}}{{\varphi }_{k}}\right]$ and ${f}_{n,k}\to {f}_{k}$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$, $\mathrm{\forall }k\in \mathtt{N}$.

The continuity of HHT s implies

and hence

$\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n,k}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{k}}\sim \frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{k}}{\mathtt{HH}{\varphi }_{k}}.$

Thus,

The proof is completed. □

Theorem 5.4 EHHT s are continuous with respect to Δ convergence.

Proof Let ${\beta }_{n}\stackrel{\mathrm{\Delta }}{\to }\beta$ in ${\mathtt{B}}_{1}\left({\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }},\mathcal{S},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$, then there are ${f}_{n}\in {\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }}$ and ${\varphi }_{n}\in \mathrm{\Delta }$ such that

$\left({\beta }_{n}-\beta \right)\ast {\varphi }_{n}=\left[\frac{{f}_{n}\ast {\varphi }_{k}}{{\varphi }_{k}}\right]$

and ${f}_{n}\to 0$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty }$. Hence, by Theorem 4.1,

Hence the theorem. □

Remark 5.5 Let $\beta =\left[\frac{\mathtt{HH}{f}_{n}}{\mathtt{HH}{\delta }_{n}}\right]\in {\mathtt{B}}_{2}\left({\mathrm{\Psi }}_{1},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{2},{\mathrm{\Psi }}_{3},•\right)$, then it is so natural to define the inverse HHT of β as

${\mathrm{\Lambda }}^{-1}\beta =\left[\frac{{f}_{n}}{{\delta }_{n}}\right]$

in the space ${\mathtt{B}}_{1}\left({\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }},\mathcal{S},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$.

It is of interest to see that the inverse transform ${\mathrm{\Lambda }}^{-1}$ preserves all the above properties that Λ does such as linearity, one-to-one and continuity of ${\mathrm{\Lambda }}^{-1}$ with respect to convergence in ${\mathtt{B}}_{1}\left({\mathcal{S}}^{\mathrm{\prime }},\mathcal{S},\mathrm{\Delta },\ast \right)$. Proofs are avoided.
