Unformatted text preview: 18.03 Problem Set 8: Solutions 29. [Part I problems: 0] (a) [9] 1 ( s 1)( s 2 + 4) has poles at s = 1 and at s = ± 2 i . The rightmost pole has real part 1, so the inverse Laplace transform f ( t ) of any function with the same pole diagram grows (for large t ) with exponential rate 1, like e t . More precisely, for large t ,  f ( t )  < e bt for any b > 1, and e at <  f ( t )  for any a < 1. The numerator of e s s 2 + 2 s + 2 is never zero and never infinity, so the poles occur at the roots of the denominator, which are 1 ± i . All functions f ( t ) whose Laplace transform have this pole diagram die off like e t (that is, more quickly than e at for any a < 1 and less quickly than e at for any a > 1), and oscillate with circular frequency 1. The constant function 3 never becomes infinite, so it has no poles; the pole diagram is empty. Functions whose Laplace transform has this pole diagram die off faster than any exponential as t → ∞ . For example any function which is zero for large t has Laplace transform with empty pole diagram. Another example is the function e t 2 . (b) [9] (i) W ( s ) = L e t/ 2 sin ( 3 t 2 ) = 3 / 2 ( s + 1 2 ) 2 + 9 4 . p ( s ) = 1 W ( s ) = 2 3 s 2 + s + 5 2 ....
