TT2 Q4 Question for step4
« on: December 02, 2018, 01:36:30 PM »
Hello everyone, I am wondering why the range of $\theta$ is $[0,\pi]$ instead of $[\pi,0]$.

Then the integral estimation would be $ |\int_{\gamma_{\epsilon}} f(z) \text{d}z| \leq \int_{\pi}^{0} |f(z)| \text{d}z = \frac{-\pi \epsilon}{\sqrt{\epsilon} (1-{\epsilon}^2)}$ goes to 0 as $\epsilon$ close to 0+.

Never mind. I think I know why.

In the answer, f(z) is integral over $-\gamma_{\epsilon}$. I guess this is why its range is $[0,\pi]$

Because we do not calculate--we estimate it.
