comment Applications of algebra and/or topology to stochastic (or Markov) processes
I can't think of any application at this moment, but I certainly would be very interested in reading that PDF, if you find it once again!

comment Article or book about the history of spherical geometry?
I, too, once met a lecturer who dissed the book. He was an analyst, and said something along the lines of "well, I'm an analyst, not a geometer, and that's not complex analysis". It is an excellent book, nevertheless. You just have to approach it on its own terms.

@Miha: You mean the fundamental lemma of the calculus of variations? I have not seen it called like that either.

comment Distributional derivative coincides with classical derivative?
Alright, I've edited the question according to your comments. The last equation now implies the original proposition?

comment Eigenvalues of the differentiation operator
I think you must first specify the dimension of your vector space, and after that find the matrix representation of your operator. Then you can find the eigenvalues...

comment Infinitely differentiable function with compact support
This is a good detour as well, thanks a bunch.
