(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1) How do you integrate 1/ [z^2] over the unit circle?

After you integrate, do you put it in polar form or do you replace z with x + iy then solve it?

I keep getting zero. It should exist since z=o is undefined, right?

2) How do you integrate x dz over gamma, when gamma is the straight line path from 0 to 1+i?

I have looked at some examples that put the line iny=mx +bform, then integrate it w/ respect to y, but my professor gave us this equation:gamma(t)= (1-t)P + tQ.I don't know where it comes from, so that's confusing me. The fact that it's the integral of x dz confuses me, too.

Thanks.
