**1. Homework Statement**

Is there a Laurent Series for Log(z) in the Annulus 0<|z|<1?

**2. Homework Equations**

Go here for the Theorem. It is theorem 7.8:

This whole section actually comes right out of my current textbook!

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

From what is stated in the theorem I'm assuming yes because Log(z) is analytic for all z not equal to 0. So for any Annulus A(0,0,R), where R >0, a laurent series should exist.

I calculated a few coefficients out, but I'm not sure it is right for all n. I tried to google this situation to verify that my logic is right, but the only series I'm ever given is the maclaurin series of Log(1+z) which converges in the disk |z|<1.

Any help on this would be most apperciated it.

THanx.
