    Hello I can change the integral into a circle integral etc

    but don't know how to deal with the P?

    Any help thanks.



    Integral d(theta) / ( 1- 2pcos(theta) + p^2 ) with limits 2pi,0

    Probably would have helped if your original post wasn't missing the actual integral.

    Attitude now isn't helping either...

    I attached an image and also entered a tinypic link, it doesn't seem to have gone through though. The integral was written but it wasn't written very clearly. I edited it now hopefully it is more clear.

    Sorry if it came across that way but that was not my intention, it was just an observation.

    Obviously I'm on a site where people give help to people like myself for free, I didn't mean to come of as self entitled, sorry about that.

    Complete the square in the denominator to get (p-\cos \theta)^2 + \sin^2 \theta in the denominator

    I assume he wants to do it by contour though.

    ..
    If z = e^{i\theta} then z + 1/z = 2 cos theta.

    Because you are a new user, if you post links they will need to be approved first (to prevent spam etc.). I approved your post but I think you may have deleted the image.

    As you post more your posts won't need to approved. Best to use an original account instead of starting a new one...

    DM I get it now, thanks.
