Wednesday and Monday: Gamma, Piecewise Functions, Convolution, Resolvent
DEF: Piecewise Continuous Function
Existence of the Laplace integral.
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
Unit Step: u(t)=1 for t>=0, u(t)=0 for t<0.
L(u(t-a)) = (1/s) exp(-as) [for a >= 0 only]
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.
Periodic function theorem
Proof details (Monday)
Laplace of the square wave. Problem 7.5-25.
Applications of Laplace's method from 7.3, 7.4, 7.5
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))
