------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 18.03 Lecture 26, April 14 Laplace Transform: basic properties; functions of a complex variable; poles diagrams; s-shift law. [1] The Laplace transform connects two worlds: | The t domain | | | | t is real and positive | | | | functions f(t) are signals, perhaps nasty, with discontinuities | | and delta functions | | | | ODEs relating them | | | | convolution | | | | systems represented by their weight functions w(t) | | | | ^ L | | L^{-1} v | | The s domain | | | | s is complex | | | | beautiful functions F(s) , often rational = poly/poly | | | | and algebraic equations relating them | |

------------------------------------------------------------------------ | | ordinary multiplication of functions | | | | systems represented by their transfer functions W(s) | | | The use in ODEs will be to apply L to an ODE, solve the resulting very simple algebraic equation in the s using the "inverse Laplace transform" world, and then return to reality L^{-1}. [2] The definition can be motivated but it is more efficient to simply give it and come to the motivation later. Here it is. We continue to consider functions (possibly generalized) f(t) such that f(t) = 0 for t < 0 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
