The current project on which I am working as a software engineer requires that I perform, in software, a Laplace Transform upon a value as follows. Qlag = Q / (S + 1) The only information I have to date about S is that it denotes a Laplace operation. I'm afraid I don't know what to do with the value Q in regards to the intended Laplace Transform. As written, does the equation imply unequivocably that the Laplace operation is to act upon the value Q? To encode the operation in softare, I must know how to manually perform whatever is to be done. Although a coworker suggested that a matrix is involved, I do not yet have a clue how to begin such a calculation. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. J. Darren Peterson
