I have reformulated my problem, and now I am getting different terms
in the form:


for which the inverse Laplace transform should exist.
However, MATHEMATICA still does not give me the formula for
the inverse. It returns the correct inverse for 1/Sqrt[s*(s+a)],
but not for the above expression, to which it should, in principle,
apply the convolution theorem.
