Wednesday and Monday: Gamma, Piecewise Functions, Convolution, Resolvent

DEF: Piecewise Continuous Function
   Existence of the Laplace integral.
   One-sided and two-sided Laplace integral
      Freeway example, suspension collides with a ramp.
 DEF. Gamma function
    Gamma(t) = integral x=0 to x=infinity  x^{t-1} e^{-x}
    Gamma(n)=(n-1)!, generalizes the factorial function
 DEF. Mellin transform
   {Mf}(s)= phi(s)=integral x=0 to x=infinity  x^{s-1} f(x)
 DEF. Two-sided Laplace transform
   {Bf}(s) = {Mf(-ln(x))}(s) = integral x=0 to x=infinity x^{s-1}f(-ln x)
 DEF. Unit step u(t-a)=1 for t>=a, else zero
 DEF. Ramp t->(t-a)u(t-a)
 Backward table problems: examples
 Forward table problems: examples
 Computing Laplace integrals L(f(t)) with rules
 Solving an equation L(y(t))=expression in s for y(t)
    Complex roots and quadratic factors
    Partial fraction methods
 Trig identities and their use in Laplace calculations
 Hyperbolic functions and Laplace calculations
   Why the forward and backward tables don't have cosh, sinh entries
 Piecewise Functions
   Unit Step: u(t)=1 for t>=0, u(t)=0 for t<0.
   Pulse: pulse(t,a,b)=u(t-a)-u(t-b)
   Ramp: ramp(t-a)=(t-a)u(t-a)
   L(u(t-a)) = (1/s) exp(-as) [for a >= 0 only]
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]
 Piecewise defined periodic waves
   Square wave: f(t)=1 on [0,1), f(t)=-1 on [1,2), 2-periodic
   Triangular wave: f(t)=|t| on [-1,1], 2-periodic
   Sawtooth wave: f(t)=t on [0,1], 1-periodic
   Rectified sine: f(t)=|sin(kt)|
   Half-wave rectified sine: f(t)=sin(kt) when positive, else zero.
   Parabolic wave
 Periodic function theorem
      Proof details
      Laplace of the square wave. Problem 7.5-25.
      Answer: (1/s)tanh(as/2)

Applications of Laplace's method from 7.3, 7.4, 7.5
Convolution theorem 
    DEF. Convolution of f and g = f*g(t) = integral of f(x)g(t-x) from x=0 to x=t
    THEOREM. L(f(t))L(g(t))=L(convolution of f and g)
    Application:   L(cos t)L(sin t) = L(0.5 t sin(t))
 Second shifting Theorems
   e^{-as}L(f(t))=L(f(t-a)u(t-a)) Backward table
   L(g(t)u(t-a))=e^{-as}L(g(t+a)) Forward table
   Forward table
   L(sin(t)u(t-Pi)) = e^{-Pi s} L(sin(t)|t->t+Pi)
                    = e^{-Pi s} L(sin(t+Pi))
                    = e^{-Pi s} L(sin(t)cos(Pi)+sin(Pi)cos(t))
                    = e^{-Pi s} L(-sin(t))
                    = e^{-Pi s} ( -1/(s^2+1))
   Backward table
   L(f(t)) = e^{-2s}/s^2
           = e^{-2s} L(t)
           = L(t u(t)|t->t-2)
           = L((t-2)u(t-2))
   Therefore f(t) = (t-2)u(t-2) = ramp at t=2.

Laplace Resolvent Method.
  ==> This method is a shortcut for solving systems by Laplace's method.
  ==> It is also a convenient way to solve systems with maple.
