Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


  • test functions and distributions,
  • operations on distributions (translation, dilation, differentiation, folding),
  • Schwartz functions and tempered distributions,
  • Fourier transformations of tempered distributions,
  • wavelets and wavelet frames.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students have studied and understand the basic concepts of distribution theory. They have deepened their knowledge of wavelets and learnt about applications through examples. They are able to name the essential propositions of the lecture as well as to classify and to explain the connections.

They understand the proofs presented in the lecture and are able to comprehend and explain them. In particular, they are able to outline the conditions and assumptions that are necessary for the validity of the statements.
