Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
Stehfest  derived an algorithm for the numerical inversion of Laplace transforms. This Demonstration applies this algorithm to determine the inverse Laplace transforms of four test functions . The inverse functions and corresponding test functions are the following:[more]
1. with ,
2. with , where is Euler's constant,
3. with ,
4. with .
You can vary the parameters and . The blue curve shows the exact inverse and the red dots, the numerically calculated data using the Gaver–Stehfest algorithm.[less]
