If $\mathbb{T}$ is a time scale, $s \in \mathbb{T}$, and $f$ is rd-continuous, then we define the unilateral Laplace transform of $f$ about $s$ by the formula $$\mathscr{L}_{\mathbb{T}}\{f\}(z;s) = \displaystyle\int_s^{\infty} f(t) e_{\ominus z}(\sigma(t),s) \Delta t,$$ for all $z$ for which the integral converges, where $\displaystyle\int \ldots \Delta t$ denotes the delta integral, $e_{\ominus z}$ denotes a delta exponential whose subscript is the forward circle minus of the constant $z$, and $\sigma$ is the forward jump.
