Sumudu transform: A new integral transform to solve differential equations and control engineering problems. (English) Zbl 0768.44003
The author modifies the Laplace transform in the following form \(F(u) = (1/u)\int^ \infty_ 0 e^{-t/u}f(t)dt\), so that \(u\) and \(F(u)\) are no longer dummies but can be treated as replicas of \(t\) and \(f(t)\). It is even possible to express them in the same units as \(t\) and \(f(t)\) so that the consistency of units in a differential equation describing a physical process can be maintained even after transformation. A few properties of the modified transform are given and two applications are included as examples.
