Laplace transforms are a type of integral transform that are great for making unruly differential equations more manageable. Simply take the Laplace transform of the differential equation in question, solve that equation algebraically, and try to find the inverse transform. Here’s the Laplace transform of the function f (t):

the Laplace transform of the function f (t)
