The widespread use of the unilateral Laplace transform reflects the fact that in practice we often deal with causal systems and signals that have a defined starting time (usually chosen as $t_0=0$). The Fourier transform is mainly used for analyzing ideal signals and systems, such as ideal filters (e.g., low pass, high pass, etc.) and ideal signals such as ...
