I have a function(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]G_0=\frac{1-\alpha/u^2}{1-\alpha u^2} .[/tex]

Since [tex]0<\alpha<1[/tex], [tex]G_0[/tex] has zeroes but no poles inside the unit circle.

I need to evaluate

[tex]\Gamma(\tau)=\frac{1}{2\pi i}\oint{\frac{\ln{G_0 (u)}}{u-\tau}du}[/tex]

where the integral is around the unit circle. How do I evaluate the poles of the integrand so I can evaluate this using residues?

EDIT: Oops, G0 has a second order singularity at u=0, too.
