# Contour Integration

## Homework Statement

Find the poles for the integrals:
$$\int_{c}ds e^{st} \frac{1}{(s + \kappa + \frac{g^{2}}{s+\gamma+\gamma_{n}})}$$

One pole is at $$-(\gamma+\gamma_{n})$$.

Is there another one?

Also
$$\int_{c}ds e^{st} \frac{1}{(s + \kappa + \frac{g^{2}}{s+\gamma+\gamma_{n}})} \frac{1}{s+\gamma+\gamma_{n}}$$
Similiarly, one pole is at $$-(\gamma+\gamma_{n})$$.

Is there another one? I just need to be sure.

Thanks

Poles are the values of the integration variable s where the denominator vanishes, right? I don't think -(gamma+gamma_n) is a pole. In both cases, it looks to me like you are getting a relatively complicated quadratic in s.

Can you tell me what technique of integration I should use to evaluate this integral?
