Hi there, I was just trying to solve a differential equation of the following form: \begin{eqnarray} \partial_{x}f(x)\partial_{x}f(x)=\tau \delta(x)(g(x)f(x)  h(x)f(x)) \end{eqnarray} I think the difficult part here is how to treat the delta function on the right handsize, since the equation itself is badly defined there. I just approached taking the following limits $x\to +\varepsilon$ and $x\to \varepsilon$, and integrating the equation between $[\varepsilon,+\epsilon]$, however I know now this doesnt provide a correct answer, is there a general procedure to deal with such differential equations? Thanks!
