This talk is meant to be a gentle introduction to the algebraic theory of linear PDE with constant coefficients. We will present the connection between submodules of free modules of polynomial rings and solution sets of PDEs, and establish certain results relating analytical properties of solutions with algebraic properties of polynomial modules. We will also review classical spaces of functions in distribution theory and Fourier analysis.
