Laplace function a bit limited - Printable Version +- HP Forums (https://www.hpmuseum.org/forum) +-- Forum: HP Calculators (and very old HP Computers) (/forum-3.html) +--- Forum: HP Prime (/forum-5.html) +--- Thread: Laplace function a bit limited (/thread-7181.html) Laplace function a bit limited - hsauro - 11-05-2016 11:42 PM Just got a new HP prime C series. I tried some Laplace transform derivations and the first two I picked failed, these were: 1/t which I entered as laplace (1/t, t, s) it returned undef and (1-e^{-t})/t entered as laplace ((1-e^(-t))/t, t, s) returned undef. Question is have I entered the equations incorrectly or is the CAS just limited? The 1/t in particular is a standard function to get the laplace transform of, its just 1/s^2.

Mark Hardman Of course I know what the Laplace transform of t is. What I wanted to know was whether the calculator knew, obviously it didn't. As I said, this was surpring for such a basic transform. It suggests to me that the Cas capability at least for Laplace transforms might be limited. I shall need to try some more.

Prime certainly can do t. Anyone one reading this thread, it's a false alarm, sorry for the confusion.
