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

if the definition of a dirac delta (impulse) function is just a sinc function with an infinite height and 0 width, why is it that they are shown and used in Fourier analysis as having a finite height?

for example g(t) = cos(2*PI*f0*t) has two impulses of height = 1/2 at f=+/-f0
