Say we have a function of the form [tex]f(x)=\bigg\lbrace\begin{matrix}c \qquad\quad\text{x=0}\\ 0\quad\text{elsewhere}\end{matrix}[/tex] If we then integrate this over all space i.e. [tex]\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}f(x)dx[/tex] Why does the result equal zero?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
