### Re: Hunting the Dirac Delta

You need delta or actually its derivative?
I have now no issues with delta nor its derivative. BTW p is transition probability, p(t = 0) = delta.

the Q can I write FPE in verry nice compact form and what are the advantages

p_t = (A (B p_x))_x

it's just another PDE.

You should be able to always transform to:
p_t = (A (B p_x))_x + V(x) p
for all 1D problems, as all $D = 1$ diffusion problems involve self-adjoint operators in a weighted L^2 space.
(See footnote 3, Ch. 2 in my Vol II book).

Doesn't work in $D \ge 2$, where the "generic" diffusion operator is non-self-adjoint.

Probably can drop the V(x) term.
