# Laplace transformation and its explanation by the late Prof. Arthur Mattuck

Hall
Lecture 20 by Prof. Mattuck is simply great. I don’t think there can be any better communication than that, it seemed as if what was in his mind simply got teleported in to mine, and that’s why, it seems now, Aristotle gave so much importance (and almost considered it as a divine power) to the speech as an expression.

The other thing which gave me a joyous shock was how Laplace was able to see, completely on his own (though the integral of transformation was already in use), that the integral could be so well employed in solving differential equations. That’s simply ELEGANT!
