Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am wondering about the derivative of the Dirac delta distribution ##\delta(t)##. I know:

$$\frac{d}{dt} u(t) = \delta(t)$$

So what is ##\frac{d}{dt} \delta(t)##?

How do we take the derivative of a distribution? I've heard about distributional derivatives, but I don't think any of those theorems apply here.
