If F is a continuous function on the real line and f=F is its distributional derivative, then the continuous primitive integral of distribution f is abf=F(b)F(a). This integral contains the Lebesgue, Henstock-Kurzweil, and wide Denjoy integrals. Underthe Alexiewicz norm, the space of integrable distributions is a Banach space. We define theconvolution fg(x)=f(xy)g(y)dy for f an integrable distribution and g a function of bounded variation or an L1 function. Usual properties of convolutions are shown to hold: commutativity, associativity, commutation with translation. For g of bounded variation,fg is uniformly continuous and we have the estimate fgfg𝒱, where f=supI|If| is the Alexiewicz norm. This supremum is taken over all intervalsI. When gL1, the estimate is fgfg1. There are results on differentiation and integration of convolutions. A type of Fubini theorem is proved for the continuous primitive integral.
