The Laplace Transform
An important point to remember:
f (x)
F( p)
The above is a statement that f(x) and F(p) are
transform pairs. What this means is that for
each f(x) there is a unique F(p) and for each F(p)
there is a “unique” f(x).

If F(p) represent the Laplace transform of a function f(t)
i.e.
L[f(x)] = F(p)
we then say f(x) is the inverse Laplace transform of F(p)

f(x) = L -1 {F(p)}

Useful Rules
First translation or shift rule:
If L[f(x)] = F(p) when p > c, then
L[e ax f(x)] = F(p - a),
Equivalently,
L -1 [F(p – a)]=e ax f(x).
Used to find transforms of product of the form e ax f(x), when
F(p) is known.
