Excellent introduction on Laplace Transforms.


Comment4 Narayan, February 22, 2010 at 5:15 a.m.:

Really enjoyed the class. Especially, the power series and how it is analogous to the Laplace transform was particularly helpful.


Comment5 Adam Erb, February 19, 2011 at 8:42 p.m.:

After taking numerous courses involving the Laplace Transform this is the first time it intuitively makes sense.


Comment6 Leonardo, February 7, 2012 at 8:15 p.m.:

Fantastic Lecture! I finally understood Laplace transforms.
Your students are very lucky.
