comment MMA breaks down when `DSolve` -ing a third-order linear ODE
I cannot see how the Weber function is LaplaceTransform-invariant, and I don't know what you mean about "in the physical sense". In the "mathematical sense" I played around in some special cases, and I looked in Tables of Laplace Transforms by Oberhettinger and Badii, which includes transforms of Weber functions, but your assertion is still not clear to me.

I don't see how solutions to these equations, which appear to be unbounded for large Abs[x], could be LaplaceTransform-invariant functions. Do you have a reference for this?

comment Plot is discontinuous (it shouldn't be)
The leading term in the asymptotic expansion for x<0 is 2 Cos[2 Pi x]. For x>0, the expression is much more complicated but the leading term is A Cos[2 Sqrt[2] Pi x+d] where A~1.7 and d~0.5. The transition between these asymptotic behaviours is in over -3 < x < 3.

comment How to make the docked cell and the navigation toolbar in the Slide Show?
I note that this bug in Inherited does not appear to be fixed? Also, rather than using nested If's, how could you use Switch instead? All my attempts fail...

comment Finding the intersection of a curve with an interpolation function
Did you try increasing the number of PlotPoints or MaxRecursion options when dealing with the seismic signal? RootsInRange is not fully adaptive (you could try Ted Ersek's package instead). However, since you have the data, why not just subtract of the values of the intersecting function at the data ordinates and look for sign changes in successive data? This will be much more efficient that Interpolating a highly oscillatory function ...

See also the demonstration Five Points Determine a Conic Section. An interesting related problem is that of Small Lattice Ellipses.

The paper Can your computer do complex analysis? is also relevant to this discussion.

The RootSearch package <library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/4482/>; by Ted Ersek returns all the roots over a specified range as a list of replacement rules This package .A RootsInRange function was presented in "Finding Roots in an Interval" in The Mathematica Journal 7(2), 1998: should be sufficient:
