Use the Cauchy theorem to show that the integral around the unit circle |z|=1, traversed in either direction, is zero for each of the following functions:

1) f(z)=z exp(-z)
2) f(z)=tan(z)
3) f(z)=Log(z+2)

#### Solution Preview

The Cauchy-Goursat theorem tells us that if is analytic in a simply connected domain D, then for every closed contour C in D. Since is a closed contour, we can apply the ...

#### Solution Summary

One version of Cauchy's theorem for complex functions states that the integral around a closed simple curve of a complex function is zero, provided the integrand is analytic in the region enclosed by the curve. The solution comprises half a page written in Word with Mathtype illustrating the application of this theorem in 3 concrete examples.
