# Lippmann-Schwinger Equation

Hi,
I have a less than acceptable grasp of Complex Analysis. I am confused about the derivation of the Lippmann-Schwinger equation. In the energy basis, a singularity is resolved (denominator: E-K) by adding a small complex term and performing integration over the positive reals. Can someone explain how this accomplishes the task of circumventing the singularity?
Thanks
