I was asked a question that I am pretty sure has a catch. I was asked how would the series representations of certain complex functions be affected by the choice of branch. My understanding is that the series representation, where it exists, is unique, so it really doesn't matter which branch one chooses, but I don't think that is what they are looking for. Consider the familiar function $\ln (1+z)$ for example? Thank you.
