Unformatted text preview: MATH 530 Qualifying Exam August 2009 (S. Bell, A. Eremenko) Each problem is worth 25 points 1. Compute Z sin( x 2 ) dx by integrating e z 2 around the contour that follows the real axis from the origin to R , then follows the circle Re it as t ranges from t = 0 to t = / 4, and then follows a line back from Re i/ 4 to the origin. Let R tend to infinity. You may use the fact that R  e x 2 dx = without proof. 2. Suppose a 1 , a 2 , . . . , a N are distinct nonzero complex numbers and let denote the domain obtained by removing the union of the closed line segments joining each of the points a k to the origin, k = 1 , 2 , . . . , N . Prove that there is an analytic function f ( z ) on such that f ( z ) N = N Y k =1 ( z a k ) . 3. For a closed contour , let F ( z ) = Z 1 w z dw for z in the open set equal to the complex plane minus the trace of . Flesh out the details in the following standard argument....
