centerline{bf Residue theorem}

bf 5 rm

The inregrand is bf even, rm so we can extend the integration to the whole X-axis:
I = {1over 2}int_{-infty}^infty {cos 2xover 9x^2 + 4} dx
= Re l{ {1over 2}int_{-infty}^infty {e^{2ix} over 9x^2 + 4}dx r} =
= Re l{ {1over ...

This provides several examples of using residue theorem to evaluate integrals.
