does [tex] f(z)=\frac{ze^{iz}}{z^2+a^2} [/tex] have a singularity at infinity?
if so, how do i get the residue there?

A singularity in mathematics is a point on a function where the function is undefined or does not behave as expected. In other words, it is a point where the function becomes infinite or has a discontinuity.
There are three main types of singularities in mathematics: removable, essential, and poles. Removable singularities occur when a function can be redefined at the point of singularity to make it continuous. Essential singularities occur when a function does not have a limit at the point of singularity. Poles occur when a function becomes infinitely large at the point of singularity.
In complex analysis, residues are used to evaluate complex integrals. They are calculated by finding the coefficient of the term with the highest negative power in the Laurent series expansion of a function around the singularity. The residue theorem states that the value of a complex integral is equal to the sum of the residues of the singularities inside the contour of integration.
It is not always possible to avoid singularities in mathematical functions. However, some techniques such as contour integration and analytic continuation can be used to bypass or "go around" singularities to obtain meaningful results.
No, not all singularities are undesirable in mathematical functions. In fact, singularities can sometimes provide important insights into the behavior of a function. For example, poles can indicate the location of a possible maximum or minimum of a function.
