What is the vector space under consideration when we say that a linear differential equation is of the form(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] Dy=f [/tex]

where the differential operator D is a linear operator? What is its underlying field?

Also, is the Fourier series just an expansion (for a subspace of this vector space) in the "sine and cosine basis"?
