Mathematics. They have the general form: They transform functions of a specific type into functions of another type. Many Engineering problems can be solved easier by first applying suitable integral transforms, then solving the problem in the transformed form, and then ‘transform the result back’ to the original problem.

We will discuss in this module only the Laplace Transform , which has important applications in Electrical Engineering (the others have as well, but you will discuss them, if necessary, when their applications arise). We will in particular focus on its application to solving Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs) . 1.0. Background: Integral transforms

Example: In the design of RLC circuits , certain ODE’s appear which can be solved by the Laplace Transform technique. We will discuss some examples later. 1.0. Background: Integral transforms ?

    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.
