In the calculator the Heaviside step function H(t) is simply referred to as '1'. To
check the transform in the calculator use: 1 ` LAP. The result is '1/X', i.e.,
Similarly, 'U0' ` LAP , produces the result 'U0/X', i.e., L{U

You can obtain Dirac's delta function in the calculator by using: 1` ILAP
The result is
This result is simply symbolic, i.e., you cannot find a numerical value for, say
