Solve: Integral of a Polynomial

Suppose that p(z) and q(z) are polynomials with a complex coefficient with the property that deg q(z) is greater than or equal to deg p(z)+2. If C is a positively oriented simple closed contour containing all of the roots of q(z) on its interior, then prove that Integral C of p(z)/q(z) dz = 0

Upward lift

Matrix Algebra - Definite vs. Indefinite

Let A be an nxn symmetric matrix such that det {see attachment}. We know from the matrix algebra that the associated quadratic form {see attachment}, where x = (x1,...xn), is either positive-definite, negative- definite or indefinite. Now assume the diagonal entries of A are all zero. Explain why q(x) is indefinite. (Hint:
