2 Chapter 3 [ ] ( 29 0 ( ) ( ) (3-1) st F s f t f t e dt i - = = L Definition The Laplace transform of a function, f ( t ), is defined as where F ( s ) is the symbol for the Laplace transform, L is the Laplace transform operator, and f ( t ) is some function of time, t . Note : The L operator transforms a time domain function f ( t ) into an s domain function, F ( s ). s is a complex variable : s = a + bj , 1 j = -

3 Chapter 3 Inverse Laplace Transform, L By definition, the inverse Laplace transform operator, L -1 , converts an s -domain function back to the corresponding time domain function: ( 29 ( 29 1 f t F s - = L Important Properties: Both L and L -1 are linear operators . Thus, ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 (3-3) ax t by t a x t b y t aX s bY s + = + = + L L L
