A meromorphic function is analytic everywhere except at poles. If a function has a pole of order , then we can write it as: . Now as , .
In my class we are learning about isolated singularities, here is my understanding:
1. Removable Singularity: a function f that is analytic in an open disc except for at the origin.
a) f is bounded in the neighorhood of that point.
b) All positive terms.
2. Pole of Order m: the coefficient of the -1 term of the power series.
b) Finite many negative terms.
3. Essential Singularity: A function f with Laurent series that has infinitely many negative terms.
a) The image f(U) is dense in complex plane.
Are my properties listed correctly?
Here are my questions:
Why is property 2a true?
If a function f is completely holomorphic in a disc D, including its center, then it doesn't have a singularity, right?
This question is more in general, but how does a meromorphic function tie to all this? A meromorphic can only be a pole?
