Hi,

The documentation isn't very clear on how to compute a Laplace Transform of
a piecewise continuous function f(t).  Say I have a function f(t) such that:

f(t) = {3 over 0<=t<2, -2 over 2<=t<3, 0 over 3 <=t}

how can I use the LaplaceTransform[] function to compute this easily?
(aside from separately integrating the pieces, and adding)

Thanks,

-Mike
