An Improved Heaviside Approach to Partial Fraction Expansion and Its Applications
Man, Yiu-Kwong
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v40 n6 p808-814 2009
In this note, we present an improved Heaviside approach to compute the partial fraction expansions of proper rational functions. This method uses synthetic divisions to determine the unknown partial fraction coefficients successively, without the need to use differentiation or to solve a system of linear equations. Examples of its applications in indefinite integration, inverse Laplace transforms and linear ordinary differential equations are included.
