MATH 185: COMPLEX ANALYSIS FALL 2007/08 PROBLEM SET 10 SOLUTIONS For a C , 0 < r < R , we write A ( a ; r,R ) := { z C | r < | z - a | < R } . We also write C × = A (0; r, ) and D * ( a,r ) = A ( a ;0 ,r ). The number of zeroes, counted with multiplicity, of f in Ω is denoted Z f (Ω). You may use without proof any results that had been proved in the lectures. 1. Let the Laurent expansion of cot( πz ) on A (0;1 , 2) be cot( πz ) = X n = -∞ a n z n . Compute a n for n < 0. Solution. Let Γ be the circle ∂D (0 ,r ) traversed once counter-clockwise and 1 < r < 2. Note that Ind(Γ; z ) = 1 for all z D (0 ,r ), ie. the bounded component of Γ. By the integral formula for Laurent coeﬃcients, a - k = 1 2 πi Z Γ cot( πz ) z - k +1 dz = 1 2 πi Z Γ z k - 1 cot( πz ) dz for k N . For k = 1, z k - 1 cot( πz ) = cot( πz ) = cos( πz ) sin( πz ) has three isolated (non-removable) singularities in the bounded component of Γ, namely, - 1 , 0 , 1. So by the residue theorem 1 , a - 1 = 1 2 πi Z Γ cot( πz ) dz = Res(cot( πz ); - 1) + Res(cot( πz );0) + Res(cot( πz );1) = cos( πz ) π cos( πz ) ± ± ± ± z = - 1 + cos( πz ) π cos( πz ) ± ± ± ± z =0 + cos( πz ) π cos( πz ) ± ± ± ± z =1 = 3 π . For k 2, lim z 0 z [ z k - 1 cot( πz )] = lim z 0 z sin( πz ) [ z k - 1 cos( πz )] = 1 π ² lim z 0 πz sin( πz ) ³ × h lim z 0 z k - 1 cos( πz ) i = 0 Date : December 14, 2007 (Version 1.1). 1 We use result that Res( ϕ/ψ ; a ) = ϕ ( a ) 0 ( a ) if ϕ ( a ) 6 = 0, ψ ( a ) = 0 and ψ 0 ( a ) 6 = 0. 1

In other words, 0 is a removable singularity of z k - 1 cot( πz ) for k 2. Note that the residue about any removable singularity is 0. So by the residue theorem 1 , a - k = 1 2 πi Z Γ z k - 1 cot( πz ) dz = Res( z k - 1 cot( πz ); - 1) + Res( z k - 1 cot( πz );0) + Res( z k - 1 cot( πz );1) = z k - 1 cos( πz ) d dz sin( πz ) ± ± ± ± ± z = - 1 + 0 + z k - 1 cos( πz ) d dz cos( πz ) ± ± ± ± ± z =1 = ( - 1) k - 1 π + 1 π = 0 if k is odd, 2 π if k is even, for k 2. 2.
