In science:

In the end, by means of stratified ultradistributions, we define tempered-stratified ultradistributions and we prove two results.
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
First, if X is a real surface, the tempered-stratified ultradistributions define a sheaf on the subanalytic site relative to X .
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
Second, the tempered-stratified ultradistributions on the complementary of a 1-regular closed subset of X coincide with the sections of the presheaf of tempered ultradistributions.
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
One of the aim of the present article is to define tempered ultradistributions of Beurling and Roumieu class of order s > 1 and Whitney jets with growth conditions as sheaves on the subanalytic site relative to a real analytic manifold X .
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
As growth conditions are not of local nature, functional spaces defined on open subsets of X, as tempered distributions, Whitney C ∞ -functions or holomorphic functions with polynomial growth at the boundary do not glue on arbitrary coverings.
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
They defined tempered distributions and Whitney C ∞ -functions as sheaves on the subanalytic site, Xsa, relative to a real analytic manifold X .
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
Among the motivations of this paper there is the fact that the naive definition of tempered ultradistributions, mimicking that of tempered distributions (see ), does not give a sheaf on the subanalytic site, as explained in Section 1.3.
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
Let us recall that tempered ultradistributions on an open set U in X are defined as global sections of ultradistributions modulo ultradistributions with support on X \ U .
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
Then we define tempered-stratified ultradistributions on U as global ultradistributions modulo stratified ultradistributions on X \ U .
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
We prove that, when X has dimension 2, tempered-stratified ultradistributions define a sheaf on Xsa .
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
Further, we prove that, if X \ U satisfies a regularity condition, tempered-stratified ultradistributions on U coincides with classical tempered ultradistributions on U (Theorem 3.2.1).
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
We conclude by proving that tempered-stratified ultradistributions and other spaces of ultradistributions similarly defined do not give rise to sheaves on Xsa, if X has dimension > 2.
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
In the present article we do not use tempered-stratified ultradistributions to study systems of linear differential equations, postponing this problem to future investigations.
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
Then, mimicking, we define the presheaf of tempered ultradistributions and we recall a condition, due to H.
Stratified Whitney jets and tempered ultradistributions on the subanalytic site
In the end of the section, we prove that tempered ultradistributions do not glue on finitely many subanalytic open subsets of R2 .
