the question is , can a delta function /distribution [tex] \delta (x-a) [/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

solve a NOnlinear problem of the form [tex] F(y,y',y'',x) [/tex]

the question is that in many cases you can NOT multiply a distribution by itself so you could not deal with Nonlinear terms such as [tex] (y)^{3} [/tex] or [tex] yy' [/tex]
