Complex integral question

  1. Jul 15, 2010 #1
    [tex]res(f,\infty)= res(\frac{1}{z^2}f(\frac{1}{z}),0)=\frac{1}{z^2}\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}(2z^{10})^n\\[/tex]
    [tex]res(f,\infty)= res(\frac{1}{z^2}f(\frac{1}{z}),0)=-[res(f,inside|z|=3)+res(f,outside|z|=3)][/tex]

    from the sum i get that there is no [tex]z^{-1}[/tex] member in the series
    so the coefficient of [tex]z^{-1}[/tex] is zero

    so the residiu of infinity is zero
    but still all of my singular points are |z|=3
    so the integral equals zero

    did i solved it correctly
    did i written every formula regarding the laws of residue correctly here
