Okay, I will help you with specific parts if you want it but if we get egg on our face...

Hi;

That will yield the inverse?

It will at least give me the Cauchy principal value integral they are talking about,

hi everybody, i have got a doubt as to if laplace transform of (cos at)/t exists. if it doesnt, please explain as to why.

Hi haron;

The transform of that does exist.

doesnt tan(t) grow faster than an exponential? then cannot use laplace?

Hi nich;

Let's say that it does. Why does that mean you can not use the transform?

I think L{tan(at)} doesn't exist because of its discontinuities.

Is that supposed to be the Euler-Mascheroni constant? Where is that coming from?

Hi;

This was long ago and needs refreshing. That either comes from Alpha or a table. That is the Euler-Mascheroni constant.

W|A is giving me that but without that constant. Can't really see where it would come from... I'll try the integration tomorrow.

### Re: Laplace Transform of tan(t)

Make sure you scan it well.

Probably that constant comes from the fact that the answer contains a series that equals it.

### Re: Laplace Transform of tan(t)

Off the top of my head I can only think of the sum of the reciprocals of the natural numbers from 1 to n, minus log(n), as n tends to infinity. I know that yields the Euler-Mascheroni constant. I do not know of any others, maybe there are more.

Oh yes, there are many more! But no one knows whether it is irrational or not.

### Re: Laplace Transform of tan(t)

The constant also comes out in the Laplace transform of natural log. Interesting.

I am looking at the wiki page now. There are lots involving the gamma function.
