(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

show that [itex]\delta[/itex](x-ct)[itex]\delta[/itex](x+ct) = [itex]\delta[/itex](x)[itex]\delta[/itex](t)

P.S. sorry I mean't:

show that 2C*[itex]\delta[/itex](x-ct)[itex]\delta[/itex](x+ct) = [itex]\delta[/itex](x)[itex]\delta[/itex](t)

2. Relevant equations

calculus and Dirac-delta properties

3. The attempt at a solution

[tex]d/dx \int_{-\infty}^x\delta(x-ct)\delta(x+ct) = \delta(x)\delta(t) dx[/tex]

P.S. sorry I mean't:

[tex]2C*d/dx \int_{-\infty}^x\delta(x-ct)\delta(x+ct) = ...[/tex]

there are a couple of really weird steps that somebody else used after the above
