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 ?
