    It doesn't make sense to have a Kronecker [itex]\delta[/itex] in this integral. Isn't this rather a Dirac [itex]\delta[/itex] distribution?

    If so, you may use the formula
    [tex]\int_{\mathbb{R}} \mathrm{d} x \delta[f(x)] g(x)=\sum_{j} \frac{1}{\left |f'(x_j) \right|} g(x_j),[/tex]
    where [itex]f[/itex] is a function that has only 1st order roots [itex]x_j[/itex].
