Homework Help: Dirac delta function evaluation

  1. Nov 9, 2009 #1
    I do not know how to execute the problem with the 2x in the problem.

    Evaluate the integral:


    \int_{-4}^{4} (x^2+2x+1) \delta(2x) dx

    Simplest way would be to change variables. Write 2x = y, and you know what integral over [tex] \delta(y) [/tex] gives right?
