The Laplace Transform
This chapter presents an efficient and powerful method for solving the differential equations that govern electrical networks and many other problems of engineering and applied science. The method, which originated in work of O. Heaviside1 dating from the 1890s, consists in transforming the differential equations, according to certain rules, into corresponding algebraic equations. The latter are then solved algebraically and the solutions to the original differential equations are obtained from them by Heaviside’s rules.
