FE Sample--Problem 3

**Victor Ivrii**:

Calculations of residue should be with explanation. Especially, at double poles simply wrong

**Heng Kan**:

For the residues, please see the attatched scanned pictures. Also, as for infinity, since infinity is not an isolated singularity, the residue at infinity is not defined.

**Heng Kan**:

So is there anything wrong with my calculation? Thanks.

Difficult to check. You leave too little vertical space and overcomplicated. Everything is much more straightforward:

$\newcommand{\Res}{\operatorname{Res}}$

Consider term $\frac{\cos(z/6)}{\sin^2(z)}$. Since $\sin (z)= (-1)^n (z-n\pi) + O((z-n\pi)^3)$ near $z=n\pi$,

$$

\Res (\frac{\cos(z/6)}{\sin^2(z)}, n\pi) = \Res (\frac{\cos(z/6)}{(z-n\pi)^2}, n\pi) = (\cos (z/6))'|_{z=n\pi}= -\frac{1}{6}\sin (n\pi/6).

$$

On the other hand

$$

\Res (\frac{z}{\sin (z)}, n\pi) = \frac{1}{\cos (n\pi)}= (-1)^n.

$$

So

$$

\Res (f(z), n\pi) = -\frac{1}{6}\sin (n\pi/6)+ (-1)^n.

$$
