    Poles of an exponential function

    This is a bit embarrassing since I know I've done this problem before.

    I was trying to respond to a post and this problem came up. Where are the poles in the expression e^{-z^2}= cos(z^2) - i ~ sin(z^2)? I know it's a simple problem but I just can't wrap my mind about it.

    Thanks!

    There are no poles, f(z)=e^{-z^2} is holomorphic in \mathbb{C}.

    Thanks. That was my first thought but I managed to make things complicated. It drives my students nuts because I will do a derivation in 10 lines that can often be done in two.
