but how about laplace transform ....Cos(3) = ???

2) Cos(0) =1

but how about Cosh(0) =? ; Cosh(1) =?

Sinh(0) = ?; Sinh(1) = ?

3) How to do the partial fractions for ...

(s+13)/(s^2 +2s+10) = ??

Thx for help =)

First, what do **you** think about these questions?

Definition of the Laplace Transform:

[tex]L(f(t)) = \int_0^\infty e^{-st}f(t)dt[/tex]

Plug in cos(3) or cosh(0) or whatever else in here for f(t) and then integrate.

Alternatively:

Well-known Result (i.e. derivation is trivial):

[tex]L(1) = 1/s[/tex]

A consequence of the definition of the Laplace transform is Linearity:

[tex]L(c f1 + d f2) = c L(f1) + d L(f2) [/tex]

In other words, the Laplace transform of a constant times a function is the constant times the Laplace transform of the function. (That makes sense too, since the Laplace transform is just an integral.)

Definitions of Hyperbolic functions:

[tex]sinh(x) = \frac{e^x - e^{-x}}{2}[/tex]

[tex]cosh(x) = \frac{e^x + e^{-x}}{2}[/tex]

Does that make sense? The hyperbolic functions will give you some constant and you know how to get the LT from there.
