The Laplace method for solving linear differential equations with constant coefficients is based upon transforming the differential equation into an algebraic equation. It is especially applicable to models containing a nonhomogeneous forcing term f(t) (such as the electrical generator in a circuit) that is either discontinuous or is applied only at a single instant of time (an impulse).
