ABSTRACT
This memoir presents a simple sequential definition of the Feynman integral -which
is applicable to a rather large class of functionals. The existence theorem shows that
this sequential Feynman integral exists and equals the analytic Feynman for all elements
of a Banach algebra of functionals expressable as Fourier transforms of measures of
v
finite variation on Lp . This integral has good translation and rotation properties
and permutes with other integrals and sums in a reasonable way. Applications to the
Schroedinger equation are given and the relationship to other sequential definitions
are discussed.
