Hello and thank you for posting your question to BrainMass.

The solution is attached below in two files. The files are identical in content, only differ in format. The first is in MS Word format, while the other is in Adobe pdf format. Therefore you can choose the format that is most suitable to you.

suppose is an isolated singularity of f, then
is removable the Laurent expansion is a Taylor series - there are no negative powers of in the expansion.
is a pole of order n there are exactly n terms in the Laurent expansion with negative powers of
is an essential singularity there is infinite number of terms in the Laurent expansion with negative powers of

There are two singularities for this ...

Solution Summary

The solution shows how to expand a complex function to a Laurent series, identify the type of singularity and find the residue.

Series and singularities of complex functions

1. Find the series representations for the function
f(z) = z/[(z-2)(z^2-1)]
in powers of z that is valid when
1) |z| < 1
2) 1 < |z| < 2
3) |z| > 2

2. Fine all singularities of the function f in C, and determine whether it is a pole (find its order), a removable singularity, or an essential singularity.
1) f(z) = ze^(3/z)
2) f(z) = (cos z)/[(z - (pi/2))(sin z)]
3) f(z) = (cos z)/[(z^2)(z - pi)^3]
