Delta Function Limits

  1. Mar 1, 2008 #1
    with limits from 0 to 1

    [tex]\int[/tex] delta(x) * cos(x) dx

    does this delta function integral even make sense from 0 to 1?

    Sort of. It's a little delicate. If you take the delta function representation to be symmetric, then it's 1/2. Otherwise it's not very well defined.
