    been long time since this was done so just want to check my answers with anyone kind enough to have a look:

    locate and classify the singularities of

    f(z)=1/(z(1-cosh z))

    so ive said have singularities at z=o and z=2kpi(I)

    at z I have got pole of order 3

    since f(z)=1/{z[z^2/2+z^4/4!+..}

    =g(z)/z^3 where g(z) not 0 and z=0

    similarly I got poles of order 2 for the other zeroes of f


    let f(z)=z sinh(1/(z+1))

    I) find Laurent series about -1

    ii) write down a punctured open disc containing the circle C={z;|Z+1|+1} on whichf is represented by this series

    ii state nature of the singularity of f at -1

    integrate f(z) around the circle C

    so I got a Laurent series with even terms


    and odd terms


    for ii do they just want 0<|Z+1|<1??

    for iii) looks like essential singularity

    and the integral is just 2(pi)I(-1)
