I need help/advice with an diracdelta integral. I computed the integral seen in the attachment and got 1. However, I am not quite sure if I did it right. Also, I don´t know how to throw this kind of integral with vectors in wolfram alpha.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, does this integral equal 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Isn't the area under the curve of the dirac delta function always equal to 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, but it is a little bit different if you multiply it with another function, like here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well it's beyond my knowledge, that was literally all I knew about the dirac delta function lol.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know if this helps or not. Seems like y^2... not sure... http://www.thefouriertransform.com/math/impulse.php

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@experimentX No but it is a vector integral in R2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as for DeltaDirac, \[ \int_p^q \delta {(t  a)} f(t) dt = f(a) \; \text{ where a} \in (p, q)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@experimentX My integral looks a bit harder than your example. You can see it in the attachment.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I couldn't make head or tals out of it \[ \int_{\mathfrak{ R^3}} \delta(xy)x^2 dx \; \text{wobei} \; y = (0,1,2)^T \] Usually vector surface integrals are like \[\iint_s \vec F(x,y,z) \cdot d\vec s \] where 's' is some region of surface like plane or cylinder and F is vector valued function. ]http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/CalcIII/SurfIntVectorField.aspx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Got it. In this case the delta function must be y and therefore the integral is 0^2+1^2+2^2=5.
