what the hell does this equal to?

0? infinity? undefined?

z is complex

>>7648337

i mean only the z->0 limit

it is 0 from one side and infinity from the other

what gives?

>>

>>7648344

doesn't a function have to meet certain criteria to be differentiable or have a limit? (continuity or something?) i don't remember

fuck you for breaking my brain!

Undefined, because you can get 0 and infinity from the limit depending on what line you approach it from. So: it is undefined. You could determine the residue though, which is 1.

>>

>>7648355

well, I guess that settles it

>>

>>7648360

>the residue

can you explain how it is 1?

>>

>>7648367

look up the power series of the exponential function: exp(z). Replace z by 1/z and you've got the power series for the function we're discussing. According to Cauchy's residue theorem, every function that is differentiable in a closed domain C has a net integral value of 0. So every analytical function nets 0 when you integrate it over a closed region, EXCEPT for 1/(z-z0), where z0 is 0 for this case. If you look at the power series of this function, you can see that it contains exactly one "copy" of 1/z; the rest is 1/z^2, 1/z^3... : all differentiable! So if you were to integrate this function over a circle around 0, the answer would be 2*pi*i times the residu, which is the coefficient of the 1/z term: 1.

Considering how boring real analysis is, complx analysis is a blessing.

>>

>>7648374

thanks a lot

>>

>>7648374

Whoops, mistake by me.

>1/z^2, 1/z^3: all differentiable

I meant to say: all integratable, which implies that the integral is 0

>>

Check out the Grand Picard Theorem too. Basically, exp(1/z) takes every complex value except zero infinitely often in the vicinity of z=0.

>>

>>7648374

Thank you, complex analysis is really interesting.

I love how you can use it to solve crazy rational function real integrals from -inf to inf by using jordans lemma or Ml inequality then using residue theorem or something else on the contour integral.

>>

>>7648418

so, the residue is 0 or 1?

>>

>>7648489

The residue is 1. The closed integral that includes 0 is 2πi.

>>

The limit isn't defined because there isn't one single path to move a complex number to a single point as is the case in the reals.
