## Homework Statement

They are integrating around a loop containing [tex]z_0[/tex] with radius [tex]\rho[/tex] of the complex function [tex]\frac{1}{z^m}[/tex].

Would it be helpful for me to just copy the book's example? It's more my attempt to understand the steps that they are taking that is giving me such a hard time. While the title of the problem says "Integral of [tex]\frac{1}{z^m}[/tex] with Integer Power m" the final contour integral they are taking ends up being [tex]\oint_{c}(z-z_0)^m dz[/tex] I do not see how this, at all, relates to the title of the problem.

Furthermore, I do not understand this equality:

[tex](z-z_0)^m=p^m e^{imt}[/tex]I apologize for not following the mandated format for this, but it is not really me trying to solve the problem, so much as it is me trying to understand what the heck the textbook is trying to tell me.
