    In general a pole (z0) of f(z) is of order m, if for the first whole number m the following limit exists:

    lim (z-z0)^m*f(z)

    Naturally if this limit exists, z0 is a pole.

    The singularity is at z=0, so z0=0. Now we want to find m such that:

    lim z^m*(1-cosh z)/z^3

    exists. m=0:

    lim (1-cosh z)/z^3 ---> lim -sinh z/(3z^2) ---> lim -cosh z/(6z) ---> infinity
    z--->0 z--->0 z--->0

    so the order is not 0. Now m=1:

    lim z(1-cosh z)/z^3 = lim (1-cosh z)/z^2 ---> lim -sinh ...

    Solution Summary

    Poles and residues are investigated. The functions for singular points are given.
