Sine Method
In looking at inverse Laplace transforms with conjugate coefficients, we found a shortcut that
we referred to as the sine method. Lets see if we can find a similar shortcut here. First, look
back on the calculation of c
2z
c
z p*

z p

2p
3 j
430o

.
p p*
j
190o

The numerator is a pure imaginary number, because when we take the difference of a number
and its complex conjugate, we will always get two times the imaginary part of the original
number
p p* j j 2 j .
Knowing this, lets see if we can find a short-cut. First, write c as
c

2z
z p*

z p

d
2p
430o

.
2 j 2 j
2 j

Since we know the j2 will always be in the denominator, we could have just solved for
d 2 z z p 3 j 430o .
Similarly

z p*

## or we could have just calculated

d 2 z z p 3 j 430o ,
where we had calculated 1 / 2 . When we take the inverse of the two terms we get

2 2k sin k p 30o

f k

4 2k sin k p 30o .
We can compare this with our previous result by

## f k 4 2k sin 30o k 90o 90o 30o

4 2 k cos 30o k o 60o

## The generalization of this method is

f k

k
d p sin k p d

The advantage of this sine method is that the calculation of d is slightly simpler than c.
Summary
To find the inverse of the complex conjugate component of a function like
F z
F z
F1 z
2 1

z
z bz c z p z p*
use one of the following two methods:
Sine method (preferred):
1.

## Determine the pole with the positive imaginary part

b b 2 4c
p
j p p ,

2.

Calculate
d F1 z

3.

(5.4.3 a)

(5.4.3 b)

That part of the time domain function due to the complex conjugate pair is
f k

d p sin k p d .

(5.4.3 c)

Cosine method:

2/19/2015

1.

## Determine p (same as above)

2.

Calculate

3.

F1 z

z p

c c

z p

That part of the time domain function due to the complex conjugate pair is
f k 2 c p cos k p d
k

There is a very simple method to practice using these methods. Look at the decaying
sine and cosine functions in the table of Z transforms, put some numbers in them, and make
sure you can get back to the original time domain functions.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Example
Let us start with a term from the table and see if the method really works.
Z a k sin T k

za sin T
.
z 2a cos T z a 2

Solution
Remember, T is an angle! Take a = 0.8, T 30o . That gives us
F z

za sin T
0.8(0.5) z

z 2a cos T a a
z 0.8 0.866 0.8

so we will solve
