Dirac Delta as a Useful Technical Tool in Modelling Signals but Hard to Think About It as a Physical Signal Itself
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: In this paper, we show that the Dirac delta is a useful technical tool in modelling signals but hard to think about it as a physical signal itself. This thesis is supported here by an example coming from the field of measuring physical quantities and measurement theory.
