Instead of doing,
Now assuming that are positive integers,
Now apply the residue theorem ...
I have a problem integrating the following function. I would appreciate if someone can help me. The equation is attached.
I would really appreciate if someone can give me a thorough answer so that I can fully understand the process.
Thankss for your reply. However, I cannot see how you got to the second part of your equations. Indeed p and theta are integer values.
I was looking into other methods such as integration by parts etc. Do you think that integration by parts will work?
How can be an integer if you are integrating over it??
Oh, and the real part of is just , so do TPH's integral, then take the real part of the answer.
The only bad thing about my approach is that you need to compute the residue which is a little time consuming. But it works out. You need to use Laurent series over here. Find the Taylor expansions and take the Cauchy product. I leave those details for you.
What do you not understand about the contour integral?
