Operator Fundamental solution

Country Boy December 21st, 2017 06:56 AM

If $x> \xi$ then $|x- \xi|= x- \xi$ and $\frac{d^2|x-\xi|}{dx}= \frac{d^2(x- \xi)}{dx}= 0$. If $x< \xi$ then $|x- \xi|= -x+ \xi$ and $\frac{d^2|x-\xi|}{dx}= \frac{d^2(-x+\xi)}{dx}= 0$. The derivative, and so the second derivative, is not defined at $x= \xi$.

Now, what is the definition of "fundamental solution"?
