Laplace transforms to do integrals?

    My teacher said that the computer uses laplace transforms to do integrals , does any one know how this is done , or where i could find info on this

    The integral [tex]\int_0^t f(t) dt[/tex]

    is the inverse Laplace transform of [tex]\frac{F(s)}{s}[/tex]

    I don't think that evaluating Bromwich integral of F(s)/s is much easier than evaluating the integral f(t) directly. But who knows, may be its true with computer.
