On a conjecture about Dirac's delta representation using q-Gaussians

Abstract : Tsallis and Jauregui have recently conjectured a representation of the celebrated Dirac delta distribution, which they call $\delta_q(x)$, based on $q-$exponential functions. However, they could not prove their conjecture and used numerical experiments that suggest its validity. In this note, we provide a rigourous mathematical approach to this problem and prove their conjecture by recourse to the notion of superstatistics.
