I am trying to evaluate the limit:

[tex]

\lim_{x\to 0^{+}} \frac{\delta''(x)}{\delta''(x)}

[/tex]

Where [tex] \delta'(x) [/tex] is the first derivative of the dirac distribution and [tex] \delta''(x) [/tex] is the second derivative of the dirac distribution.

I thought about the fact that this expression will be infinity / infinity and then using L'Hospitals but that doesn't help.

I guess my question (as someone with an engineering / physics background and not a mathematician) is this limit impossible to evaulate ? and if so is it impossible because taking the limiting value of a dirac distribution doesn't make a whole lot of sense ?

Thanks
