5(a) and Lorentzian functions with unit area in Fig. 5(b). From these graphs it is evident that, as ε gets smaller, the functions χε(t) become taller and narrower and approach the delta function in the limit of Fig. 5 Dirac’s delta as the limit of: (a) Gaussian functions; (b) Lorentzian functions.

5) will have coefficients that behave asymptotically as n–2. Second, although our notation reflects this particular situation, the term ‘oscillation’ does not necessarily imply that we have to deal with time-varying physical quantities: for example, time t could be replaced by a space variable, say z, so that the frequency ω would then be replaced by a ‘spatial frequency’ (the so-called wavenumber, with units of rad/m and usually denoted by k or k), meaning that x(z) has a value dependent on position.

1). The mass represents the inertia properties of physical bodies that, under the action of a given applied force F, are set in motion with an acceleration that is inversely proportional to their mass. Finally, it is interesting to consider a few examples of ‘equivalent springs’ keq, meaning by this term the replacement of one or more combination of stiff elements with a single spring that takes into account and represents— for the problem at hand—the stiffness of such combination. Two springs can be connected in series or in parallel, as shown in Fig.
