Hi, I've just found in an electrodynamics book a demonstration of Gauss' law involving a definition of Dirac's Delta I didn't know. Substantially, it states that:


(x and x' are vectors, of course).
I can see it somewhat makes sense, since the singularity is the only place where the modulus of the laplacian is the sum of two infinites, but I can't find a real proof. Can someone help me? Thanks.
