    Hi guys,

    Is it right to say that a simple pole (pole of order 1) is a removable singularity (and vice versa)?

    No. A pole of order 1 is not removable. Think about the integral of 1/z on the unit circle.

    I realized it as soon as I posted this thread and forgot to delete it.

    Anyway, thank you!
