Homework Help: Inverse Laplace trnasform

  1. Dec 1, 2009 #1
    I'm doing lapace transforms and I'm to the stage where I am finding inverse transforms. A problem I am stuck on involves doing partial fractions of a complex equation. I have attempted to do it, and now I have a question about my answer.

    My answer is

    -2i+1exp((1-i)*t) + -2i+1exp((1+i)*t)

    Books answer

    2exp(t)cos(t)+3exp(t)sin(t)

    Is my answer equivalent?

    Re: LaPlace

    Can you convert the book's answer into exp functions (no trig)? Then they should be easy to compare.
