Unit step and impulse function equations to simplify the solution of engineering problems
AbstractA unit step equation is proposed that when differentiated by elementary calculus yields the impulse function and when the resulting impulse function equation is integrated by elementary calculus yields the proposed unit step equation. Using these two equations, a two stage methodology is presented for the simplification of the solution of problems involving the impulse function.
