Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.

Integrals and series. Vol. 4: Direct Laplace transforms. (English) Zbl 0786.44003
New York: Gordon and Breach Science Publishers. xx, 619 p. $ 170.00 (1992).

This book comprises a very extensive list of direct Laplace transforms, including many published for the first time. The tabulation follows the conventional “original function in the left-, transformation in the right-hand columns”, whilst the required formulae can be found from a detailed contents list at the front of the book.

Most of the functions associated with the theory of operational calculus are represented, including the theta functions, but not the Jacobian elliptic functions, although a reference is given for these latter doubly periodic functions in a comprehensive bibliography at the end of the book.

Of passing interest is the way periodicity can be imposed on representative function segments by replacing the argument with its entier, i.e. for arbitrary f(t), f([t]) is periodic. This idea figures quite prominently throughout the tables.

Finally, an appendix summarises the properties and applications of Laplace transforms, and there is a particularly edifying bit on the solution of differential and integral equations by the method of Laplace transforms.
