If you have a question about this talk, please contact Valentin Hübner.

Green’s functions are ubiquitous throughout physics and applied mathematics. I will discuss some the history surrounding them, including Green’s “physical” proof of the existence of the Dirichlet Green’s function for the Laplacian. After this I’ll move onto fundamental solutions for constant coefficient partial differential operators and some proofs of the Malgrange–Ehrenpreis theorem. I hope to keep technicalities to a minimum, so all welcome.
