Abstract

The representation of the Dirac delta, obtained by differentiating the parametric equation of the unit step with a riser, is used to solve two examples referring to problems of a different physical nature, each with the product of two deltas as a forcing function. Each problem was solved by an entirely different procedure. In comparison with non-parametric solutions, the present solutions are both more accurate and truer representations of the physics involved.
