Singularities and Poles

The function f(z) = zsin(pi/z)/[(z-1)(z-2)^2] has isolated singularities only. Determine the singularities of f(z) and classify each of them as removable, a pole, or an essential singularity. If z0 is a removable singularity, find the value f(zo) that makes f(z) analytic at z0. If z0 is a pole. find the singular part of f(z) at

Green's thereom Problem

Use Green's Thereom to find the area enclosed by the curve: {abs(x)}^(1/2) + {abs(y)}^(1/2) = 1. It is important that you solve this problem using Green's Method because that is how my professor prefers it. I know that you have to make the above statement true and switch to a different set of coordinates. Something al
