eiz
f (z) = .
(z 2 + 1)2 (z 2 + 4)

(a) Compute the residues Res (f ; i) and Res (f ; 2i) of f .


(b) Use f to compute Z ∞

2.) Let n ∈ N and gn : C \ {±i} → C, z 7→ (z 2 + 1)−n . Show that

where the curve γ is given in the figure on the right.

3.) Let a ∈ C be such that |a| < 1 and let n be a natural number with n ≥ 1. Furthermore,
define the function f : C → C by

f (z) = (z − 1)n ez − a

and let H = {z ∈ C : Re z ≥ 0}.

(a) Show that for any zero z of f in H it holds true that |z − 1| < 1.
(b) How many zeros (counted with multiplicity) does f have in H.
(c) How many different zeros does f have in H.
