LaplaceTransform

LaplaceTransform
gives the Laplace transform of expr.
LaplaceTransform
gives the multidimensional Laplace transform of expr.
  • The Laplace transform of a function is defined to be .
  • The lower limit of the integral is effectively taken to be , so that the Laplace transform of the Dirac delta function is equal to 1. »
