This module examines the Laplace Transform, an analytical tool that produces exact solutions for small, closed-form, tractable systems. We use the Laplace transform to move toward a solution for the nerve fiber potentials modeled by the dynamic Strang Quartet in the earlier module of the same name. (less)
