Residues and Contour Integration Problems Classify the singularity of f ( z ) at the indicated point. 1. f ( z ) = cot( z ) at z = 0. Ans. Simple pole. Solution. The test for a simple pole at z = 0 is that lim z 0 z cot( z ) exists and is not 0. We can use L’ Hˆopital’s rule: lim z 0 z cot( z ) = lim z 0 z cos( z ) sin( z ) = lim z 0 cos( z ) - z sin( z ) cos( z ) = 1 . Thus the singularity is a simple pole. 2. f ( z ) = 1+cos( z ) ( z - π ) 2 at z = π . Ans. Removable. Solution. Power series is the simplest way to do this. We can expand cos( z ) in a Taylor series about z = π . To do so, use the trig identity cos( z ) = - cos( z - π ). Next, expand 1 - cos( z - π ) in a power series in z - π : 1 + cos( z ) = 1 - cos( z - π ) = 1 2! ( z - π ) 2 - 1 4! ( z - π ) 4 + · · · From this, we get 1 + cos( z ) ( z - π ) 2 = ( z - π ) 2 ( 1 2 - 1 4! ( z - π ) 2 + · · · ) ( z - π ) 2 = 1 2 - 1 4! ( z - π ) 2 + · · · , which is the Laurent series for 1+cos( z ) ( z - π ) 2 . Since there are no negative powers in the series, the singularity is removable. 3. f ( z ) = sin(1 /z ). Ans. Essential singularity. 4. f ( z ) = z 2 - z z 2 +2 z +1 at z = - 1. Ans. Pole of order 2. 5. f ( z ) = z - 3 sin( z ) at z = 0. Ans. Pole of order 2. 6. f ( z ) = csc( z ) cot( z ) at z = 0. Ans. Pole of order 2. 1

Find the residue of g ( z ) at the indicated singulatity. 7. g ( z ) = 1 z 2 +1 at z = - i . Ans. Res - i ( g ) = 1 2 i . Solution. Since g ( z ) = 1 ( z - i )( z + i ) , we have that ( z + i ) g ( z ) = 1 z - i , which is analytic and nonzero at z = - i . Hence, g ( z ) has a simple pole at z = - i . The residue is thus Res - i ( g ) = lim z →- i ( z + i ) g ( z ) = 1 - 2 i = 1 2 i 8. g ( z ) = e z z 3 at z = 0. Ans. Res 0 ( g ) = 1 2 . Solution. Using the power series for e z , we see that the Laurent series for g ( z ) about z = 0 is e z z 3 = 1 + z + 1 2!

### 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.
