LAPLACE TRANSFORM: Gamma Function


Let tex2html_wrap_inline28 , with tex2html_wrap_inline30 . Set tex2html_wrap_inline32 . It is easy to see that F(s) is defined for s > 0. Consider the new variable r = st. Then we have

displaymath40,

which implies

displaymath42,

where the Gamma function tex2html_wrap_inline44 is defined by

displaymath46

The domain of the Gamma function is x > 1. Using integration by part, one can easily prove the fundamental formula

displaymath50,

which implies (knowing that tex2html_wrap_inline52 )

displaymath54

Consequently, we have

displaymath56
