# checking whether the function can be holomorphically extended

How to check whether the following functions can be holomorphically extended to $0$: $z\cot(z)$, $z/e^{z}-1$, $z^{2}\sin(1/z)$.

I just know if that a function is bounded on the neighbourhood of $0$ then it can be, but I do not how to check whether it is bounded or not.

One possible way to do it would be to work out the Laurent series expansion. If it has no negative power terms, then the function can be holomorphically extended to 0; if a negative power term appears, it can't be. To your second question - one way to check whether a function is bounded at a neighborhood of 0: Does a limit exist as $z \to 0$? If it does, the function must be bounded near 0. –  Yoni Rozenshein Oct 8 '12 at 15:48
