Fuzzy Laplace transforms

Original Paper


In this paper we propose a fuzzy Laplace transform and under the strongly generalized differentiability concept, we use it in an analytic solution method for some fuzzy differential equations (FDEs). The related theorems and properties are proved in detail and the method is illustrated by solving some examples.
