Having trouble with Laplace Transform for DiffEQ

  1. Aug 11, 2004 #1
    Hello everyone, well thus far in our introduction to Laplace Transforms I am understanding much of what is being shown, however I am having the unsatisfying task of having to solve the following DiffEQ,

    [tex]y^3-8y=\sum_{k=0}^{3}\delta(2t-k\pi), y(0)=0, y'(0), y"(0)=0[/tex]

    I am having a great difficulty solving this and am overall not really understanding what do with the summation, does anyone have any strategy? Any help is greatly appreciated thank you.
