Homework Statement



Calculate the residuals of the following functions in the corresponding singularities:
1) [tex]f(z) = z^{2}\exp (\frac{1}{z})[/tex]
2) [tex]f(z) = exp(\frac{-1}{z^{2}})[/tex]


Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution


I can't tell if these functions have poles or not, because I can't calculate [tex]lim z \to 0 (z^{m}f(z))[/tex], for any natural m. Is it even possible to calculate the residuals this way, or do i need to put the function in Laurent series (which I haven't studied yet)?

Try expressing the exponential by its taylor series.
