On the Geroch-Traschen class of metrics

By R. Steinbauer and J.A. Vickers


We compare two approaches to semi-Riemannian metrics of low regularity. The maximally 'reasonable' distributional setting of Geroch and Traschen is shown to be consistently contained in the more general setting of nonlinear distributional geometry in the sense of Colombea
