Unformatted text preview: ized to unity, times the remaining constant factors. Now imagine making the parameter a smaller and smaller, such that in the limit a → we recover the original integral. You will see that the normalized function in your result is more and more sharply peaked ab o ut x , while the area under this function remains equal to 1. In the limit a → this function becomes infinitely narrow and thus behaves as a function. Therefore establish the following relation: 2 ( ) ikx e dk x πδ ∞-∞ = ∫ ....
