Method of residues

  1. May 15, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    [itex]\int^{0}_{2\pi}[/itex] [itex]\frac{d\theta}{13+5sin\theta}[/itex]

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    so i changed it using [itex]sin \theta = \frac{1}{2i} (z - \frac{1}{z})[/itex]

    and i get[itex]\oint \frac{2}{5z^2+26zi-5}[/itex] which i factored down to [itex] (z = \frac{-26±\sqrt{776}}{10})[/itex]

    but no matter how i proceed from here i cant get the answer, any ideas anyone?

    How did you get real roots to a polynomial with complex coefficients?
