    area defined as variable resedue question..

    i need to calculate this integral from plus to minus infinity f(z)=\frac{z}{e^{2\pi iz^2}-1}\\

    in this area

    <br />
      \gamma _r=\left \{ |z|=r \right \},n<r^2<n+1<br />

    i need to find the points which turn to zero in the denominator
    and non zero in the numerator.
    i got two such points
    z=\pm \sqrt{n}
    by using this formula
    res(\sqrt{a})=\frac{p(a)}{q(a)'}
    res(\sqrt{n})=\frac{1}{4\pi i}
    res(-\sqrt{n})=\frac{1}{4\pi i}

    the third point is z=0 but for it we have both numerator and denominator 0
    i calculated the residium for it by res(f(x),a)=\lim_{x->a}(f(x)(x-a)) formula
    but then
    my prof says some stuff that involves the area
    he says that my points are 0 +1 -1 +2^(0.5) -2^(0.5) etc.. because the denominator goes to zero
    for each point have a residiu and i need to sum the residiums inside.
    but here the area is not defined
    its not like (by radius 3)

    i dont know what point are inside the area

    This simply makes no sense. You say you want to integrate "from plus to minus infinity", but then you say that |z|= r. They can't both be true.

    Perhaps you mean that you want to integrate around the circle z= |r|
    And saying that " n< r^2< n+1" simply says that \sqrt{n}< r< \sqrt{n+1}

    i need to find the points which turn to zero in the denominator
    and non zero in the numerator.
    i got two such points
    z=\pm \sqrt{n}
    by using this formula
    res(\sqrt{a})=\frac{p(a)}{q(a)'}
    res(\sqrt{n})=\frac{1}{4\pi i}
    res(-\sqrt{n})=\frac{1}{4\pi i}
    e^{2\pi i z^2}- 1 is 0 only when e^{2\pi iz^2}= 1 which happens only when 2\pi i z^2 is a multiple of 2\pi i: z^2= m for some integer m so the singularities are at -\sqrt{m} and \sqrt{m}. If you are integrating around the path |z|= r, with <br />
\sqrt{n}< r< \sqrt{n+1}, then there are two poles for every positive integer m\le n

    the third point is z=0 but for it we have both numerator and denominator 0
    i calculated the residium for it by res(f(x),a)=\lim_{x->a}(f(x)(x-a)) formula
