Prepared by Faisal Amlani 1. (20 pts.) Integrate exp(−z 2 ) around the boundary of the sector |z | < R, 0 < θ < π/4 and deduce that ∞ ∞ ∞ 1 2 sin(t2 )dt = cos(t2 )dt = √ e−t dt. 20 0 0 [Hint: On the curved part of the contour | exp(−z 2 )| = exp(−r 2 cos 2θ). Show analytically that cos 2θ ≥ 1 − π 4 θ, 0 ≤ θ ≤ . π 4 This makes it easy to estimate the integral by a calculation similar to that in the proof of Jordan’s lemma.] The ﬁrst two integrals are known as Fresnel integrals. Even though the integrands don’t decrease with increasing t, the integrals are ﬁnite because of the increasingly rapid oscillation of the √ integrands as t → ∞. The latter integral is known from Calculus to equal π/2. SOLUTION : Figure 1 visualizes the two functions cos(2θ) ≥ 1 − 4 θ, π 0≤θ≤ π . 4 4 Figure 1: cos(2θ) and 1 − π θ To prove this inequality analytically, we can note that (1) the two functions are equal at the endpoints of the interval, (2) 1 − 4θ/π is linear and (3) cos(2θ) is concave down on the interval, i.e. π d2 cos(2θ) = −4 cos(2θ) ≤ 0 for 0 ≤ θ ≤ . 2 dθ 4 Let C be the positively oriented closed curve that bounds the domain 0 < r < R, 0 < θ < π/4.

0 ∞ 4. (20 pts.) Evaluate x−α dx 1 + x4 0 for α real. What are the restrictions on real α for this integral to exist?
∞ SOLUTION : Existence: We want to consider where the integral
∞ 0 x−α dx 1 + x4 converges to a ﬁnite number. Since the integrand behaves like x−α near x = 0 we must have −α > −1 =⇒ α < 1. Since the integrand behaves like x−α−4 at inﬁnity we must also have −α − 4 < −1 =⇒ α > −3. The integral converges for −3 < α < 1. Computation: The function z −α f (z ) = 1 + z4 √ clearly has ﬁrst order poles at z = (±1 ± i)/ 2 and a branch point at z = 0. If we deﬁne a branch by placing a cut on the positive real axis with 0 < arg(z ) < 2π , an obvious contour for integration is given by the counterclockwise cut contour depicted in Figure 2. Figure 2: Possible Path of Integration for f (z ) = z −α 1+z 4 After demonstrating that the integrals along Cǫ and CR vanish we would need to calculate four residues. However, there are other–perhaps easier–contours. For example, Consider the value of the integrand on the line arg(z ) = θ, f (r eiθ ) = r −α e−iαθ . 1 + r 4 ei4θ If θ is a integer multiple of π/2 then the integrand is a constant multiple of f (x) = r −α . 1 + r4 Thus any of the contours in Figure 3 can be used with the main diﬀerence the number of residue calculations. Figure 3: Possible Paths of Integration for f (z ) = z −α 1+z 4 For this solution write-up, we will choose the ﬁrst one (call it C ) depicted in Figure 3, but any one can be used. This places a branch cut on the negative real axis by choosing the branch −π < arg(z ) < π . Then we have from the value of the integrand on the positive imaginary axis z = x eiπ/2 , x−α e−iπα/2 (x eiπ/2 )−α = , 1 + (x eiπ/2 )4 1 + x4 the integral expression z −α dz = 1 + z4 → z −α dz + 1 + z4 x dx + 1 + x4
