I'm an undergraduate student, so I understand that it may be difficult to provide an answer that I can understand, but I have experience using both the Dirac delta function and residue calculus in a classroom setting, so I'm at least familiar with how they're applied.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Whether you're integrating along a closed loop around a singularity in the complex plane or you're integrating on a closed sphere in 3D space about a Dirac delta (like you might do in E&M), the value of the integral depends entirely on the point where the singularity/delta is located. Do these similarities betray a connection between the Dirac delta and residue calculus?
