Residue Theorem Application

  1. Aug 19, 2008 #1
    Hi everyone.
    I'm a brazilian mathmatician that didn't studied complex analysis. I study finance and now I'm needing to study that.
    In a paper of Lewis (2001) I found an expression that I couldn't understand.
    Does anyone can help me with that? They say they use the Residue theorem but I couldn't make the calculations using the versions of this theorem that I found.
    The equality is the following:

    $ \int_{i Im(u)-\infty} ^{i Im(u)+ \infty} \left( \int_{0} ^{\infty} e^{iuA_t} \Phi^{\ast}(u)dx \right) du=
    \pi + 2 \left( \int_{0} ^{\infty} Re \left[ \frac{e^{-iulnK} \Phi^{\ast}(-u) } {iu}\right] du \right) $

    Could you send me reference that I could read and understand the above?

    Come on people...
    Any suggestions on how to solve it?
    I basically need a relation between a contour integral and the real part of another one.
