Homework Help: Complex Analysis: Line Integrals

  1. Oct 12, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have a problem as follows:
    Let [tex]\gamma=\beta+[e^2\pi,1][/tex] where [tex]\beta[/tex] is given by [tex]\beta(t)=e^{t+it}[/tex] for [tex]0\leq 2 \leq \pi[/tex]. Evaluate [tex]\int_\gamma z^{-1} dz[/tex] .

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know that I need to parameterize the path and I have come up with the path as [tex][e^2\pi,1][/tex]. I also know that I need to integrate this problem along the path and then integrate the function and add the parts together. However, I can't seem to come up with the right way to accomplish this task. I will appreciate your help. Thank you.
