Laplace-Stieltjes, transform, convolution, integrals.


Two general theorems on Laplace-Stieltjes transform are established. One theorem is a generalized convolution theorem, while the second is a generalized Parseval theorem for a operator with kernel k(s,t). Several special cases can be derived from these theorems. One section is devoted to applications of these theorems to evaluate some integrals.
