Question: Finding the fundamental sol. of the Heat eq., with Dirac-Delta initial condition

Hi! 

When trying to find the fundamental solution of the Heat equation using Maple (software), I get the following Error message which seems to have no documentation available (?) :

Using :

          PDE := -(diff(f(x, t), t))+(diff(f(x, t), x, x))*Di = 0

assume(epsilon > 0);

pdsys := [PDE, f(x, 0) = Dirac(x-epsilon)];

pdsolve(pdsys, build)

"Error, (in casesplit/K) this version of casesplit is not yet handling the function: Dirac"

Anybody has an idea what that is? (Using Maple 17) . How can I solve this problem ?

Thanking you on Advance,
