• Periodic functions play a very important role in the study of dynamical systems

• Definition: A function f (t) is said to be periodic of period T, if for all t D(f) , we have

f (t + T) = f (t). • For examples, sine waves, cosine waves and

square waves are periodic functions. • What can we say about the transforms of

periodic functions?

Laplace Transform of Periodic Functions

11

• It is not difficult to see that f (t) can be written as the sum of translates of f T (t). Namely,

Let f T (t) be the part of f over the basic period [0, T]. This is known as the Windowed

version of the periodic function f .

Linear Systems can be solved by Laplace Transform.(7.9)

• For two equations in two unknowns, steps are: • 1. Take the Laplace Transform of both equations

in x(t) and y(t), • 2. Solve for X(s) and Y(s), then • 3. Take the inverse Laplace Transform of X(s)

and Y(s), respectively. • 4. Work out some examples.
