The Laplace transform is a linear operation that can be performed on functions of a single variable. For electronics, the transformation is taken from the time domain (the single variable is t) to the “s-domain” where s is a generalized complex frequency. The transform is useful for solving systems of linear differential equations such as those found for some electronic circuits. An understanding of the transform can lead to a description of circuit behavior expressed in terms of poles and zeros in the s-domain.
