from the unilateral transforms in two steps:
1) Split f (t) i nto its causal and anticausal components, h (t) a nd h (t), respectively.
(a) 2) T he signals h (t) a nd h (-t) a re both causal. Take the (unilateral) Laplace
transform of h (t) a nd add t o i t t he (unilateral) Laplace transform of h (-t), with
s replaced by - so T his procedure gives the (bilateral) Laplace transform of f (t).
Since h (t) a nd h (-t) are b oth causal, F1(S) a nd F 2(-S) are b oth u nilateral
Laplace transforms. Let 0" e1 a nd 0" e2 b e the abscissas of convergence of F1 (s) a nd

in Fig. 6.49. Because F (s) is finite for all values of s lying in the strip of convergence
(O"e1 < R es < -O"e2), poles of F (s) must lie outside this strip. The poles of F (s)
arising from the causal component h (t) lie t o t he left of the s trip (region) o f

(see Fig. 6.49). This fact is of crucial importance in finding the inverse bilateral
