Unformatted text preview: Extra Problems Sheet 13 Stephen Taylor June 3, 2005 1 (a). Evaluate Z x 2 x 4 + x 2 + 1 dx We note this function has simple poles at e i/ 3 and e 2 i/ 3 . Since the integrand is even, we find Z x 2 x 4 + x 2 + 1 dx = 1 2 Z R x 2 x 4 + x 2 + 1 dx (1) We now define = Re it where (0 t ) and = [ R, R ] and consider the integral Z z 2 z 4 + z 2 + 1 dz = Z z 2 z 4 + z 2 + 1 dz + Z R x 2 x 4 + x 2 + 1 dx We first show that R z 2 z 4 + z 2 +1 dz 0 as R . Through standard analysis and inequality 3.4 of Chapter 1 we find, Z z 2 z 4 + z 2 + 1 dz Z R 2 e 2 it R 4 e 4 it + R 2 e 2 it + 1 iRe it dt Z R 3  R 4 e 4 it + R 2 e 2 it + 1  dt Z R 3 R 4 R 2 1 dt = R 3 R 4 R 2 1 dt We compute the two residues interior to to obtain a value for the second integral Res( e i/ 3 ) = lim z e i/ 3 ( z e i/ 3 ) z 2 z 4 + z 2 + 1 dz = 1 4 i 3 12 Res( e 2 i/ 3 ) = lim z e 2 i/ 3 ( z e 2 i/...
