Do you really need to use the cprotect package? As simple workaround, you can use

\section{\protect\Verb|invlaplace(exp((a*s)^(1/2)), s, t)|}

Thanks. No I do not need to. I tried \texttt and that did not work due to ^ being there. So I tried cprotect. I tried your solution and it worked! – Nasser Nov 16 '13 at 11:10
