Abstract: The vector field associated with a dynamical system is assumed to be piecewise continuously differentiable. The gradient of the vector field, entering into integral expressions for the Lyapunov exponents, may therefore contain derivatives of step functions. Results from the theory of distributions are used in the integrals' evaluation.
