Proceeding then there is a function at Eq. 5 which contains a delta function at P = 0 followed by a single other value which is that of the summation. Now the value of the summation in Eq, 5 could be of any value since it is the sum of a collection of probabilities of an undefined number of actors. It does not matter whether it falls in the range [0,1]. The function of Eq. 5 is identically zero at all points except at zero and at the value of that summation. The summation value is a discrete value change from a function which is otherwise zero for all non-zero values of probability. Only the delta function at zero will make a contribution so that the value of Eq. 7 is nothing more than the number of people who do not act.
Have I assumed too much by saying that he means to use a Dirac delta function? Then his delta function may must be meant to be the sum of non-actors. Then there is a function which has only two discrete values so it's integral over any range is identically zero.
I think the author means well. However he should really rethink his analysis and try again.
Fans of Austrian economics know that it is in general non-mathematical, and so this book offers a nice and light hypothesis on how a mathematical treatment of preferences might be handled.
