The Dirac distribution with location $l$, by default $=0$, has density $d(x) = 1$ for $x = l$, $0$ else.

D <- Dirac(location = 0) # D is a Dirac distribution with location=0. r(D)(1) # r(D)(1) generates a pseudo-random-number according to a Dirac # distribution with location = 0, # which of course will take 0 as value almost surely. d(D)(0) # Density of this distribution is 1 for x = 0. p(D)(1) # Probability that x < 1 is 1. q(D)(.1) # q(D)(x) is always 0 (= location). location(D) # location of this distribution is 0. location(D) <- 2 # location of this distribution is now 2.
