What is the sum of an infinite Dirac series and why? 1 or infinity?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]\sum_{n=-\infty}^{\infty}\delta (n)[/itex]

I can see it being 1 because it's like a series version of the integral:

[itex]\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}\delta (t)dt = 1[/itex]

But for the series where n=0,

[itex]\delta (0) = \infty[/itex]
