What is Transform: Definition and 1000 Discussions

In mathematics, the Laplace transform, named after its inventor Pierre-Simon Laplace (), is an integral transform that converts a function of a real variable

t

{\displaystyle t}
(often time) to a function of a complex variable

s

{\displaystyle s}
(complex frequency). The transform has many applications in science and engineering because it is a tool for solving differential equations. In particular, it transforms linear differential equations into algebraic equations and convolution into multiplication.For suitable functions f, the Laplace transform is the integral

7. I Gravitational Field Transformations Under Boosted Velocity

Let's say we have some observer in some curved spacetime, and we have another observer moving relative to them with some velocity ##v## that is a significant fraction of ##c##. How would coordinates in this curved spacetime change between the two reference frames? For example, imagine a...
8. Can Left Handed Up Quarks Transform Into Right Handed Ones?

Isospin must be transformable if it is the case. In which case there must be additional Bosons for doing the transformation.
9. I Laplace Transform of Sign() or sgn() functions

Trying to model friction of a linear motor in the process of creating a state space model of my system. I've found it easy to model friction solely as viscous friction in the form b * x_dot, where b is the coefficient of viscous friction (N/m/s) and x_dot represents the motor linear velocity...

14. A Applying the Laplace transform to solve Differential equations

Is it possible to apply Laplace transform to some equation of finite order, second for instance, and get the differential equation of infinite order?
15. Fourier transform of wave packet

I am unsure if ##h(x,t)## really is a wave packet, but it looks like one, hence the title. Anyway, so I'd like to determine ##\hat{h}(k,t=0)##. My attempt so far is recognizing that, without the real part in the integral, i.e. ##g(x,t)=\frac{1}{2\pi}\int_{-\infty}^{\infty} a(k)e^{i(kx-\omega...
16. I Transform a 2x2 matrix into an anti-symmetric matrix

Hi, I have a 2x2 hermitian matrix like: $$A = \begin{bmatrix} a && b \\ -b && -a \end{bmatrix}$$ (b is imaginary to ensure that it is hermitian). I would like to find an orthogonal transformation M that makes A skew-symmetric: $$\hat A = \begin{bmatrix} 0 && c \\ -c && 0 \end{bmatrix}$$ Is...
