Laplace transform of $L({1-e^{-t}\over t})$

I have to find the Laplace transform of $$\mathcal{L}\left[\dfrac{1-e^{-t}}t\right],$$ then this is equivalent to $$\mathcal{L}\left[\dfrac{1}t\right]-\mathcal{L}\left[\dfrac{e^{-t}}t\right]$$ But ...

Contradiction in inverse Laplace transform problem with Mellin's inverse formula?

Let say we have to solve a given differential equation $$ty''+y'+ty=0$$ $$y(0)=1,\ y'(0)=0$$ (which is Bessel equation with the solution $y=J_0 (t)$, of course) with the Laplace transform. Then we ...

The Laplace transform - does it have an associated differential operator, if the kernel is to be viewed as a Green's function?

I've begun learning about Green's functions, and if I understand correctly, the Green's function for a linear differential operator $L$ with appropriate boundary conditions is the kernel for the ...
