If more than two questions from Section B are attempted, then credit will be given for the best two answers. Electronic calculators are permitted, provided they cannot store text. page 1 of 5 P.T.O. MATH34001 SECTION A Answer ALL four questions A1. By considering the contour integral around a ‘D—contour’ of the function eipz f1(z) = m, where p > 0 and q > 0, show that /°° qcospa: — msinpm dcc = «6—qu —00 (x2 + (12? 2(12 [Hint: you should ﬁrst show that (q cos pa: — Isinpx) can be written as I m{U (ﬂat-pm} for some complex U (an) you should ﬁnd] [11 marks] A2. The Gamma function F(z) is deﬁned by F(z)=/ e_ttz_1dt. 0 State the domain in which this integral deﬁnes a regular function of z, and derive the values of I‘(1) and I‘(1/2) (for which you may ﬁnd the formula given in B7 useful). Show that F(z +1) = zF(z) in the above domain of regularity, and explain how this recurrence formula is used to produce an analytic continuation of l‘(z) into the Whole complex plane except for simple poles at the points z = 0, —1, —2, —3, Find the residues of F(z) at these poles. [11 marks] A3. Use the strong form of Schwarz’s reﬂection principle to ﬁnd the function f3(z) that has the following properties, stating carefully any results you use:- (i) f3(z) is regular in I m(z) > 0 , and continuous in Im(z) 2 0 , except for a simple pole at z = 2 +73 with residue 6 — i; (ii) f3(z) is real for real 2; (iii) f3(z) —> 3 as |z| —> oo in Im(z) Z 0. [12 marks] A4. Deﬁne the Laplace Transform ﬁ4(p) of the function f4(t), and state the formula for the inverse transform (Bromwich’s Integral). Find f4(t) by contour integration for the particular case in which A 9 F = —_ 4(1)) p (p + 3)2 (Describe the case if > 0 fully, but also give brief details in the case t < 0.) [11 marks] page 2 of 5 P.T.O. MATH34001 SECTION B Answer TWO of the three questions B5. The function f5(z) is given by _ (z + 1)“ f5(z) — (z — 1)b where a and b are real constants. The branch of this function is chosen such that 0 S arg(z :I: 1) < 27r. For each of the component functions in f5(z), draw a clearly labelled diagram showing the branch cut and the polar coordinates used to evaluate the function. Show that a branch cut is n_ot needed for f5(z) on the section (1,00) of the real axis provided a — b = integer, and ﬁnd f5(m + 20) and f5(m — 20) for real 35 6 (—1,1). Now consider the contour integral 1 2/3i (Z + ) dz, C Z — 1 where C is a closed loop that encircles the real interval [—1, 1]. Use this to show that /1 (1 + 3:)2/3(1— \$)_2/3dx — 8—” —1 3V3 I [Hint: You will need to ﬁnd the behaviour of the integrand as 2 —> 00 and for this you may make use of the expansion (1+M)"=1Iaul a(a 1M2 I 0013) for I’ll/l < 1 and any 04.] [20 marks] page 3 of 5 P.T.O. MATH34001 B6. For the Gamma function I‘(z) as in question A2, show that the function f6 (2) given by f5(z) = sin(7rz) I‘(z) I‘(1 — z) is an entire function. Under the additional assumption that f6(z) is bounded as |z| —> oo, derive the Reﬂection Formula 2 Z . sin(7rz) ( ¢ ) [Hintz consider z = 1/2.] Use this formula to deduce (i) that Hz) never vanishes, and (ii) that 1 ‘F(§+w) for any real y. Now consider the Psi or Digamma function 111(2), which is deﬁned by the formula 71' F(z)F(1— z) = 2 7T cosh (7ry) _ F’(z) _ d — I‘(z) — Elnmz). 1W) Show that 1M2) has simple poles at the points z = 0,—1,—2,—3,..., and ﬁnd the corresponding residues. Now use the recurrence relation for F(z) (as in question A2) to obtain a corresponding recurrence relation for 1/1(z), and ﬁnally use the above Reﬂection Formula for F(z) to show that «“1 — z) = 1/)(2) + 7rcot(7rz) (z ¢ Z). [20 marks] page 4 of 5 P.T.O. MATH34001 B7. (a) Integrate the function f7(z) = 6"“2 around the rectangular contour with vertices at the points z = :|:X and :|:X + ia, where m, X and a are all real and positive.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
