Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

Stehfest [1] 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:
