Existence of the Laplace Transform

As an example, every exponential function has a Laplace transform for all finite values of and . Let's look at this case more closely.

The Laplace transform of a causal, growing exponential function

is given by

Thus, the Laplace transform of an exponential is , but this is defined only for re .
