Hi everyone,

Can someone help me with the Partial fraction decomposition of the following:

where alpha and omega are constants

Thanks!

Are they Real constants?

It looks like

It's a little messy, but why were you struggling with it? It's pretty much standard treatment with non-factorable quadratic denominators. - May 1st 2010, 02:23 PMbrian311
Hi,

Thanks for replying. Yes they are real constants. Do you have a link to an example similar to this. This is my first math class since I took calculus over 10 years ago. I'm looking as to what the "A" "B" etc. are.

No, sorry. I'm sure there are such links.

For a non-factorable quadratic denominator, just start with a*s + b in the first numerator and c*s + d in the second. These are just non-constant linear factors.
