    f = u + i v is analytic if and only if it satisfies the Cauchy-Riemann equations,
    du/dx = dv/dy
    dv/dx = -du/dy
    where z = x + i y and d is a partial derivative.
    since in the case specified f is real valued, v=0 and hence, by the first C-R equation, du/dx=0. So f(3)=u(3)=u(1)=f(1)=1.
    We use the theorem of residues:
    For integrating a function counter-clockwise over a closed contour,
    int(dz f(z)) = 2 Pi i Sum(a(c))
    where the sum is over the singular points, c, within the contour, and the residue, ...
