inverse laplace transforms
Posted:

Hello to all.
It has been years since I last made a post:)!
A colleague of mine gave me the following
InverseLaplaceTransform[1/(1 + (a*I*s)^(b)), s, t]
Mathematica 8 returns the transform unevaluated.
The values of the parameters are: 0<b<1 0<a<10
I am puzzled with the behavior of the integrand. For a=2 and b=3/10 e.g. there is a branch cut along the imaginary axis. I cannot figure out the positions of poles.
Any ideas of evaluating symbolically (or numerically) this inverse transform?
Thank you very much in advance for your response.
