Introduction:

A transformation is a mathematical device, which converts one function into


another.
For example, when a differential operator
|

\
|

dx
d
D operates on ( ) x sin x f = , it gives a
new function ( ) ( ) [ ] x cos x f D x g = = .
Laplace transform or Laplace transformation is widely used by scientists and
engineers. It is particularly effective in solving linear differential equations- ordinary as
well as partial. It reduces an ordinary differential equation into an algebraic equation.
Laplace transform directly gives the solution of differential equations with given
initial conditions without the necessity of first finding the general solution and then
evaluating the arbitrary constants.
LAPLACE TRANSFORM:
Definition: Let f(t) be a function of t defined for all positive values of t.
Then, the Laplace transforms of f(t), denoted by L{f(t)} is defined by

The parameter s is a real or complex number. In general, the parameter s is taken to be
real positive number.
Now, since L{f(t)} is a function of s , then it can be briefly written as ) s ( f .
i.e. ( ) { } ( ) s f t f L = .
Sometimes, we use symbol p for the parameter s.
Thus, ( ) { } ( ) ( ) p f dt t f e t f L

.
Existence of Laplace transforms:
The Laplace transforms is said to be exist, if the integral ( ) { } ( )dt t f e t f L
st
0

= is
convergent for some values of s.
Otherwise, we may use the following theorem:
Sufficient conditions for the existence of Laplace Transform of f(t):
If f(t) is continuous and ( ) { } t f e Lt
at
t


is finite, or in other words,
a. If f(t) is piecewise (or sectionally) continuous i.e. f(t) is continuous in every
subinterval and has finite limit at end points of each of these sub-intervals and
b. If f(t) is of exponential order of i.e., there exists M, such that ( )
t
Me t f

< . In
other words, functions of exponential order do not grow faster than
t
e

,
then the Laplace transform of f(t), i.e. ( )dt t f e
st
0

exists for a s > .


Remarks: It should be noted that, the above conditions are sufficient rather than
necessary. For example, |

\
|
t
1
L exists, though
t
1
is infinite at t = 0.
Similarly, a function f(t) for which ( ) { } t f e Lt
at
t


is finite and having a finite discontinuity
will have a Laplace transform for a s > .

INVERSE LAPLACE TRANSFORM:
( ) { } ( ) s f t f L = can also be written as ( ) ( ) { } s f L t f
1
= .
Then f(t) is called the inverse Laplace transform of ) s ( f .

Laplace transformation operator:
The symbol L, which transforms f(t) into ) s ( f , is called the Laplace
transformation operator. The operation of multiplying ( ) t f by
st
e

and integrating
from 0 to is called Laplace transformation.

Notation: In various textbooks, authors follow two types of notations:
(i). Functions are denoted by lower case letter ( ) ( ) ( ),......... t h , t g , t f .
and their Laplace transforms are denoted by
( ) ( ) ( ),......... s h , s g , s f respectively or by ( ) ( ) ( ),......... p h , p g , p f .
(ii). Functions are denoted by capital letters ( ) ( ) ( ),......... t H , t G , t F
and their Laplace transforms are denoted by corresponding lower case letters
( ) ( ) ( ),......... s h , s g , s f respectively or by ( ) ( ) ( ),......... p h , p g , p f .

Applications of Laplace Transform:
Laplace transform is very useful in obtaining solution of linear differential
equations, both ordinary and partial, solution of system of simultaneous differential
equations, solution of integral equations, solution of linear difference equations and in the
evaluation of definite integrals.
Advantages of Laplace Transform:
1. With the application of Laplace transform, particular solution of differential
equation is obtained directly without the necessity of first determining general
solution and then obtaining the particular solution (by substitution of initial
conditions).
2. Laplace transform solves non-homogeneous differential equation without the
necessity of first solving the corresponding homogeneous differential equation.

3. Laplace transform is applicable not only to continuous function but also the piecewise
continuous functions, complicated periodic functions, step function and impulse
functions.
4. Laplace transform of various functions are readily available (in tabulated form).

General properties of Laplace transform:
Although theoretically ) s ( f , the Laplace transform of f(t) is obtained from the
definition, but in practice, most of the time Laplace transforms are obtained by the
judicial application of some of the following important properties. In a nutshell, they are:
1. Linearity property states that Laplace transform of a linear combination (sum) is the
linear combination (sum) of Laplace transforms.
2. First shift theorem proves that multiplication of f(t) by
at
e amounts to replacement s
by a s in ) s ( f .
3. In change of scale, where the argument t of f is multiplied by constant a, s is replaced
by
a
s
in ) s ( f and then multiplied by
a
1
.
4. Laplace transform of a derivative f amounts to multiplication of ) s ( f by s
(approximately but for the constant ) 0 ( f .
5. Laplace transform of an integral f amounts to division of ) s ( f by s.
6. Multiplication of f(t) by t
n
amounts to differentiation of ) s ( f n times w.r.t s (with
( )
n
1 as sign).
7. Division of f(t) by t amounts to integration of ) s ( f between the limits s to .
8. Second shift theorem proves that Laplace transform of shifted function
( ) ( ) a t u a t f is obtained by multiplying ) s ( f by
at
e

.

PROPERTIES OF LAPLACE TRANSFORMATIONS:
(1). Linearity property: If a, b, c be any constants and f, g, h any functions of t, then
( ) ( ) ( ) [ ] ( ) { } ( ) { } ( ) { } t h L c t g L b t f L a t h c t g b t f a L + = + .
or
Linearity property states that Laplace transform of a linear combination (sum) is the
linear combination (sum) of Laplace transforms.
Proof: L.H.S. = ( ) ( ) ( ) [ ] t h c t g b t f a L +
( ) ( ) ( ) { }dt t ch t bg t af e
st

st

st

st

+ =
( ) { } ( ) { } ( ) { } t h cL t g bL t f aL + = .
Thus, linear transform is a linear operator, additive, subtractive and homogeneous.
This result can easily be generalized to more than three functions.
Because of the above property of L, it is called a linear operator.
(2). First shifting or first translation property or s-shift theorem:
(Replacement of s by s-a in transform)
If ( ) { } ( ) s f t f L = , then ( ) { } ( ) a s f t f e L
at
= .
or
First shift theorem proves that multiplication of f(t) by
at
e amounts to replacement s
by a s in ) s ( f .
Proof: Given ( ) { } ( ) s f t f L = .
To show: ( ) { } ( ) a s f t f e L

( ) ( ) a s f r f = = .
Thus, if we know the transform ) s ( f of f(t), then we can write the transform of ( ) t f e

simply replacing s by a s to get ( ) a s f .
