### Chapter 0: Branching Processes

Hi Mark,

For the branching processes 'Concrete Example', section 0.9 (and page 11 of the eleventh printing), where \mu > 1, we find:

L(\lambda) = \frac{p\lambda+q-p}{q\lambda+q-p} = \pi exp{-\lambda x 0} + \int ... dx

I am fine with the first step, the second I am not. How do I take this Laplace transform and convert it into such as integral?
