Authors: K Poornima, Guruprasad Ullal, Rajeev Rajkumar, Stephen Vadakkan

This explanation is to give the beginner a feel for the Unit Impulse Function: the connection between what happens in nature and the related mathematics. It does not purport to be correct.

In the standard definition of the Unit Impulse Function there is the Mathematical oddity.

This is equivalent to saying: ∞ • ZERO = 1. This explanation avoids this oddity. Hope the reader finds it useful. All comments and criticism are welcome. We do not accept any responsibility for any loss by the reader due to interpretation or application or any other reasons.
