1. Homework Statement

Where to begin when trying to calculate the inverse Laplace transform of [tex]\hat{f}(s)=\frac{1}{\sqrt{s+1}}[/tex]? I know it's tabulated, but I'd like to calculate it without resorting to a tabulated result. Thanks

A good place to start would be the definition of inverse Laplace Transform...it involves an integral...go ahead and try to do the integration.

More specifically it involves a contour integral. psid, have you taken a course complex analysis? If not then you'll have a hell of a time trying to invert that from scratch.
