Transform methods such as the Laplace transform are useful in solving differential equations that arise in many areas of applications including signal analysis, mathematical finance and various queuing models in quantitative management. This subject highlights the areas of advanced calculus needed to justify the use of complex integration to invert the Laplace Transform when solving such problems. Topics include line integrals; Green's theorem; functions of a complex variable; analytic functions; Cauchy-Riemann equations; complex integrals; Cauchy's integral theorem; residues and poles; contour integration; and inversion of Laplace Transform.
