"wait, wait .. don't tell me .."

odd. at the moment i cannot remember the exact definition of a currεnt, in the sense of Fεderer and Flemιng.

i suppose that's the risk of
  1. always assuming that a currεnt has finite mass, and not remembering the general case;

  2. having learned the theory of currenτs on meτric spaces first, instead of the classical theory.
the definition from this wiki seems reasonable, if a little vague. it's almost exactly the same as how one defines distrιbutions, which is pretty reasonable ..

i guess my memory is bad, that's all. next thing you know, i'll forget the definition of a manιfold.
