Piecewise Functions
   Unit Step: step(t)=1 for t>=0, step(t)=0 for t<0.
   Pulse: pulse(t,a,b)=step(t-a)-step(t-b)
   Ramp: ramp(t-a)=(t-a)step(t-a)
   L(step(t-a)) = (1/s) exp(-as) [for a >= 0 only]
Piecewise defined periodic waves
   Square wave
   Triangular wave
   Sawtooth
Integral Theorem
   L(int(g(x),x=0..t)) = s L(g(t))
   Applications to computing ramp(t-a)
    L(ramp(t-a)) = (1/s^2) exp(-as) [for a >= 0 only]
Laplace Resolvent Method.
  --> This method is considered a shortcut for systems by Laplace's method.
  --> It is also a convenient way to solve systems with maple.
  Consider problem 10.2-16
       x'=x+z, y'=x+y, z'=-2x-z, x(0)=1, y(0)=0, z(0)=0
  Write this as a matrix differential equation
       u'=Bu, u(0)=u0
  Then
    u:=vector([x,y,z]);
    B:=matrix([[1,0,1],[1,1,0],[-2,0,-1]]); u0:=vector([1,0,0]);
  If we think of the matrix differential equation as a scalar equation, then
  its Laplace model is
      -u(0) + s L(u(t)) = BL(u(t))
  or equivalently
      sL(u(t)) - B L(u(t)) = u0
 Write s = sI where I is the 3x3 identity matrix. Then the Laplace model is
      (aI - B) L(u(t)) = u0
 which is called the Resolvent Equation.
 The RESOLVENT is the inverse of the matrix multiplier on the left:
    Resolvent == inverse(sI - B)
 It is so-named because the vector of Laplace answers is
   vector([L(x),L(y),L(z)]) = L(u(t)) = inverse(sI - B) u0
Briefly,
    Laplace of u(t) = RESOLVENT x u(0)
Intro to the Laplace resolvent method for 2x2 systems
  Remarks on problem 10.2-16, a 3x3 system that can be solved with
     the resolvent equation shortcut.
   Problem: Write a 2x2 dynamical system as a vector-matrix equation u'=Au.
   Problem: Solve a 2x2 dynamical system in vector-matrix form u'=Au.
   The general vector-matrix DE Model u'=Au
      Laplace of u(t) = Resolvent x u(0)
      Resolvent = inverse(sI - A)
   Solve the systems by ch1 methods for x(t), y(t):
     x' = 2x, x(0)=100,
     y' = 3y, y(0)=50.
       Answer: x = 100 exp(2t), y = 50 exp(3t)
     x' = 2x+y, x(0)=1,
     y' = 3y, y(0)=2.
       Answer: y(t) = 2 exp(3t) and x(t) is the solution of the linear
               integrating factor problem x'(t)=2x(t)+2 exp(3t).
    RULE: Use Cramer's rule or matrix inversion to solve the resolvent
         equation for the vector of components L(x), L(y), L(z). Any
         linear algebra problem Bu=c where B contains symbols should
         be solved this way, unless B is triangular.
