3. Initial value theorem and the Final value theorem

5. Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors.

Given the Laplace transform F(s), the reverse process of
finding f(t) is called Inverse Laplace Transform.
f(t) =
-1
[F(s)]
Inverse Laplace transform contains no information about
the initial condition. Because Inverse Laplace transform
yields the response for t>0, and the Laplace transform
method is capable of solving problems in which there is a
discontinuity at the origin.
f(0
-
) f(0
+
) Hence, f(0
+
) is not the initial value f(0).

Three main Methods
1. Partial Fraction Method 2.Method of Residues
3.Convplution integral method.
Initiaal and Final Value Theorems
Final Value Theorem- determine the steady-state value
of the system response without finding the inverse
Laplace transform.
Procedure: 1) find the transfer function X (s)
2) multiply X(s) by s
3) take the limit of s X(s) as s goes to zero
4) result is the value of x(t) when t = infinity

Initial Value Theorem- determine the value of the time
Function when t =0 without finding the inverse transform
Procedure: 1) find the transfer function X(s)
2) multiply X(s)b y s
3) take the limit of sX(s) as S
goes to infinity
4) Result is the value of x(t) when t =0
lim x(t) = lim s.X(s)
t goes to 0 then s reaches to infinity

Final value theorem can be applied only if the Laplace transform of f(t) is F(s)
and if sF(s) is analytic on the imaginary axis and in the right half of s-

The function G(s):

Is an analytic function at all points in the s-plane except s=-4 and s=-6
Since sF(s) is analytic on the imaginary axis and in the right half of s-

Method of Residues:
Method of residues gives the inverse Laplace Transform of functions with
coefficients. This method is useful to find the Inverse Laplace transform
when the Laplace transform functions are not available in the tables.
The numbers associated with the poles of a function are known as function
residues
The Residue theorem states that if F(s) is a rational function then
inverse Laplace transform of a function is given by:

Where the residue, Rs

is obtained by:

(Rational function has a numerator and a denominator and it is like a ratio of
two polynomial functions: rational number means it can be written as a fraction:
Sqrt of 2 is an irrational number)

Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors

If A is a n by n matrix and X is a column vector of order n, we can generate a new
column vector Y by multiplication.

Y= AX
If we consider that Y also in the same direction as of X, then we should be able to
represent Y, as a scalar quantity(say ) multiplied by the vector X such that Y is
linearly related to X.

Hence we should be able to write that:

Y = A X = X
The values of that satisfy the above equation are the characteristic values of A.
The vector solution x
i
0, are called the eigenvectors of A.
(A- I)X= 0 or (I-A)X=0

Example: (Eigenvalues)

If we have Y = AX and AX = X for non zero Xs if and only if
det(I
n
-A) = 0 then is called the eigenvalues of A.

Another method:
Solution: it can be shown that eigenvalues give the addition along the diagonal
matrix of the singular matrix: 1 + 2 = 4: Other relationship is the
Determinant is equal to the multiple of the two eigenvalues: 1 . 2 = 3-4x2 = -5
By solving the two equations we get the same answers : Eigenvalues, 5 and -1.
