 P: 4 I have a proplem to analitic calculate this : (k/p^2)*LaplaceTransform[Sqrt[z^2+2p*z]/(z+p)],z,k]+ (1/p^2)*LaplaceTransform[-Sqrt[z^2+2p*z]/(z+p)^2],z,k] Im(k)=0, k>0 Im(p)=0, p>0 The Mathematica 5 doesn't calculate this. Very glad to help.

Let me make sure i've got it straight.I'll think about it later.So u wanna compute
$$I=\frac{k}{p^{2}}L(\frac{\sqrt{z^{2}+2pz}}{z+p})+\frac{1}{p^{2}}L[-\frac{\sqrt{z^{2}+2pz}}{(z+p)^{2}}]$$
??That's an ugly "animal"...

Did u try other version of Mathematica ??

Daniel.

PS.I'll work on it...I smell some Bessel functions...
 P: 4 You undestand me right! I didn't use other version, but I found the new release 5.1 at http://www.wolfram.com
 Sci Advisor HW Helper P: 11,948 Laplace Transform $$I=L(\frac{\sqrt{z^{2}+2pz}}{z+p})=\int_{0}^{+\infty} \frac{\sqrt{z^{2}+2pz}}{z+p}e^{-sz} dz$$(1) $$J=L[-\frac{\sqrt{z^{2}+2pz}}{(z+p)^{2}}]=-\int_{0}^{+\infty} \frac{\sqrt{z^{2}+2pz}}{(z+p)^{2}}e^{-sz} dz$$(2) The first integral,i complete the square under the sq.root and make a substitution: $$I=\int_{0}^{+\infty} \frac{\sqrt{(\frac{z+p}{p})^{2}-1}}{\frac{z+p}{p}} e^{-sz} dz$$(3) And now i make the substitution $$\frac{z+p}{p}\rightarrow \cosh t$$(4) $$dz=p\sinh t dt$$(5) The limits of integration are the same ($\arg\cosh 1 =0$). The exponential becomes: $$e^{-sz}=e^{sp}e^{-sp\cosh t}$$(6) Therefore $$I=p e^{sp}\int_{0}^{+\infty} e^{-sp\cosh t}\frac{\sinh^{2} t}{\cosh t} dt$$ (7) Can u convince 'Mathematica' to evaluate this integral??Maybe numerically... Using the same kind of substitution,for evaluating the second integral (L.transform),u get $$J=e^{sp} \int_{0}^{+\infty} e^{-sp\cosh t}\frac{\sinh^{2} t}{\cosh^{2} t} dt$$ (8) Again,i don't know what to do to it.

 P: 4 Thx for help, but I don't simplify your answer. I'm going use the answer (if it possible) in math model. Numerical answer is suit, but if it in the form: f(k,p)*numerical_answer I try to apply the teory residues for a solve. What do you think about? P.S. I should note that the root of initial problem is \int {0} {\inf} { exp(-rk)/r*(1/r+k) }dt r = sqrt ( p^2 + (vt)^2 )
 P: 4 without ambiguity: \int {0} {\inf} { (exp(-rk)/r)*(1/r+k) }dt r = sqrt ( p^2 + (vt)^2 ) p.s. my calculation is big, that is why I don't insert its.
