Green functions are defined in mathematics as solutions of inhomogeneous differential equations with a dirac delta as the right hand side and are used for solving such equations with a generic right hand side.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But in QFT, n-point correlation functions are also called Green functions. Why is that?

Thanks
