I am somewhat stuck on this one. Zardoz?. I rewrote as The poles are at , but the only one inside the contour is It was suggested to use a rectangular contour with vertices with an indent around . Unless I made an error, the residue is What would be a good approach for this one?. It should work out to . I managed to evaluate this by obtaining a series Then, using . This has poles at and the residues were easily found and summed up to arrive at the required result. The contour method with the rectangular contour is what has me a little befuddled.

If anyone is interested, I managed to find a solution to [color=red]***[/color]. Which can be written as which is similar to the aforementioned integral and can be done in a similar fashion avoiding the poles created by . It is rather involved and uses a contour that has a line segment AND quarter circle. The quarter circles are around the poles we're trying to avoid at 4 and 6. These are poles at 0 and i. starting with the line segment and going counterclockwise. As . For where x varies from R to . As For , and y varies from 0 to 1 Thus, . and y varies from . is over the quarter circle from and we get: . is over the quarter circle from Put them together: . Of course, so is omitted. or The limit of each improper integral does not exist, but the limit of the sum does. Take imaginary parts on both sides: ...........[2] Now, .............[3] Plug this into [3] and use [2], and we get: Evaluate the second integral: So, we're getting to the home stretch: WHEW!!!!! [color=red]***[/color]In Applied Complex Analysis with PDE's by Asnar Akhle From what I have seen of it, this is a very nice CA text. Good for class or even selfstudying. EDIT: I managed to evaluate by using the same technique as above. Only I used a rectangle with vertices and avoided the pole at by drawing a little semicircle around it.

Thanks, Z, I would like to see your method. I managed to work it out using an indent around and a rectangle with vertices at . I would like to see your method because it sounds easier. I did not think of that function you mentioned with the removable singularity. Cool.

Thanks much, Z. That's fantastic. May I ask what you used to generate that nice graph?. Paint?.
