to or for?

Is "to" the right preposition in the title of http://planetmath.org/encyclopedia/UsingLaplaceTransformToInitialValuePr... ?
Maybe "for" were better?

Re: to or for?

"For" would probably be better. Mathprof's suggestion is also good.

Re: to or for?

Thanks, Cam. I think "for" is better since it yields a bit shorter title =o)

My dear Cam, Jussi and Thomas,
I think the title suggested by Thomas is clearly better.

Dear Peruchin,
You may be right, but how do you justify it?
Jussi

Re: to or for? (from Europe)

Well my dear friend, I think that this question is not so important (like seems suggest mathcam). When you refer to a initial values by using Laplace's transform, my opinion is that Thomas suppose you're solving an ODE, hence his suggestion seems really reasonable.
Or I'm missing something?

Re: to or for? (from Europe)

Dear Perucho,
although I love short titles, I will change the title as you and Thomas wish =o)

Jussi
