Abstract

Many students of the sciences who must have background in mathematics take courses up to, and including, differential equations. In this course, one of the topics covered is the Laplace transform. Coming to prominence in the late 20th century after being popularized by a famous electrical engineer, knowledge on how to do the Laplace transform has become a necessity for many fields. While it is discussed and examples are given of how it is used, none of its applications are explored in depth in a class like differential equations. As such, this project seeks to showcase some of the more important uses of the transform.
