Using argument principle along line on the picture, calculate the number of zeroes of the following function in the first quadrant:

Answer: First, we separate the line into three parts, denoted (1), (2), and (3).

For (1): $z=x, x: 0 \rightarrow R$ with $R \rightarrow \infty$.
$$f(z) = f(x) = x^9+5x^2+3$$
Thus we have $$arg(f(z))=0$$
Hence, the change of argument is $0$.

For (2): $z=Re^{it}, t: 0 \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{2}$ with $R \rightarrow \infty$.
$$f(z) = R^9e^{i9t}-5R^2e^{i2t}+3 =R^9(e^{i9t}-\frac {5e^{i2t}} {R^7}+\frac{3}{R^9})$$
As $R \rightarrow \infty$, $f(z) \rightarrow R^9e^{i9t}$, where $9t\in [0,\frac {9\pi} {2}]$.
Hence, the change of argument is $\frac {9\pi}{2}$.

For (3): $z=yi, y: R \rightarrow 0$ with $R \rightarrow \infty$.
$$f(z)= iy^9-5y^2+3$$
As $R \rightarrow \infty$, $f(z) \rightarrow iy^{9}$.
As $y = 0$, $f(z) = 3$.
Hence, $f(z)$ traverses from y-axis to $(3,0)$.
Thus, the change of argument is $$0 - \frac{\pi}{2} = \frac{-\pi}{2}$$

Therefore, by definition, $f(z)$ has 2 zeroes in the first quadrant.

Locate each of the isolated singularities of the given function and tell whether it is a removable singularity, a pole, or an essential singularity (case (3)). If the singularity is removable, give the value of the function at the point; if the singularity is a pole, give the order of the pole.
Here is my answer:
  • First, we get that z=0 is a singularity.
  • Next, we have  $$\lim_{z\to 0}\frac{e^z-1}{z}=\lim_{z\to 0}\frac{e^z}{1} = \lim_{z\to 0}{e^z} = 1$$
  • Hence, by definition, it is a removable singularity.

Evaluate the given integral using the technique of Example 10 of Section 2.3:
$$\int_{γ} \frac{dz}{z^2}$$
where γ is any curve in {z: Re(z)≥0, z≠0}, joining -i to 1+i.

Here is my answer:
First, we observe that γ is not closed.
Since γ is in {z: Re(z)≥0, z≠0}, then
$$f(z)=\frac{1}{z^2}$$ is analytic on D.
Thus we have
$$\int_{γ} \frac{dz}{z^2} = [-\frac{1}{z}]^{1+i}_{-i} = - \frac{1}{1+i}-\frac{1}{i}$$

Question: Find the limit of each function at the given point, or explain why it does not exsit.
f(z)=(1−Im z)-1 at z0=8
and then at

  • When z0 = 8, we have  $$\lim_{z\to 8}f(z)=\lim_{z\to 8}\frac{1}{1- Im[8]} = \lim_{z\to 8}\frac{1}{1-0} = 1$$
  • When z0 = 8+i, we have $$\lim_{z\to 8+i}f(z)=\lim_{z\to 8+i}\frac{1}{1- Im(8+i)} = \lim_{z\to 8+i}\frac{1}{1-1}$$ Since the denominator cannot be zero, hence when z0 = 8+i, the limit does not exist.
