Homework Help: Help!applications of Laplace method

  1. Jun 23, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Anyone knows the applications of Laplace method (not Laplace transform) in physics?

    I'm writing a project about the Laplace method. The given project area is Mechanics/Mathematical Physics, but any application I could find is about statistics.

    2. Relevant equations
    The Laplace method is used to approximate integrals of the form:
    F([itex]\lambda[/itex])=[itex]\int[/itex][itex]^{b}_{a}[/itex]h(t)e[itex]\lambda[/itex]f(t)dt

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm thinking about the single slit diffraction (intensity). Does the Laplace method actually have something to do with this?
