Proving that the line integral $\int_{\gamma_{2}} e^{ix^2}\:\mathrm{d}x$ tends to zero

Let $f(z) = e^{iz^2}$ and $\gamma_2 = \{ z : z = Re^{i\theta}, 0 \leq \theta \leq \frac{\pi}{4} \} $. All the sources I have found online, says that the line integral $$ \left| \int_{\gamma_2} ...

What are some good general estimates?

For example, the triangle inequality for complex numbers and summations is a good one. Also, the ML-Estimate (Estimation Lemma), Cauchy Estimates $|zw|=|z||w|$. As you can probably notice, I really ...

Computing the logarithmic derivative of the numerator and denominator of a rational function.

Consider the rational function $R(z)=N(z)/D(z)$ where $N(z)$ and $D(z)$ are polynomials of $z$ with real coefficients. Furthermore, $N(0) \neq 0$, $D(0) \neq 0$, and $N(z)$ and $D(z)$ are relatively ...

How rapidly can a polynomial grow in a proximity of the real segment comparing to the values on the segment?

Let $P_n$ be a polynomial of degree $n$ with complex coefficients. Does for any $l>0$ and small $\varepsilon>0$ there exist $C=C(l,\varepsilon)>0$ and $q=q(l,\varepsilon)>1$ s.t. in the ...

Overestimate of $|\oint_{|z|=R} f(z) \mathrm{d}z|$ with $f(z)=\frac{z^a}{z^2+1}$, $0<|a|<1\mathrm{with} \;a \in \mathbb R$

How can I overestimate, $|\oint_{|z|=R} f(z) \mathrm{d}z |$ with $f(z)=\frac{z^a}{z^2+1}$, $0<|a|<1 \; \mathrm{with} \;a \in \mathbb R$ ? I tried this: $|\oint_{|z|=R} f(z) \mathrm{d}z | <= ...

Using the estimation lemma

I have the question: Prove using the estimation lemma, for a function $f$ which is continuous in some region $D$ that: $\lim_{r \mapsto 0}\displaystyle\int_{\Sigma}\dfrac{f(z)}{(z-z_0)}\ dz = 2\pi ...

Cauchy Derivative Estimates for entire functions with a bound.

The problem statement: Assume $f$ is an entire function and that there is an $n \in \mathbb{N}$ and a $C < \infty$ such that for $z \in C$ $$|f(z)| \le C ( 1+|z|^n)$$ Also assume that $f$ is never ...

$\mathbb E[\frac{\partial}{\partial\theta}\log f(X;\theta)]^2$ and $\mathbb E[\frac{\partial^2}{\partial\theta^2}\log f(X;\theta)]$

$f(x;\theta)=\frac{1}{\pi[1+(x-\theta)^2]}$; $-\infty<x<\infty,\quad-\infty<\theta<\infty$ $\log f(x;\theta)=\log (\frac{1}{\pi[1+(x-\theta)^2]})$ $\Rightarrow \log ...

How does this calculation of $\int_0^\infty(\sin^2x)/x^2\ dx$ work?

I'm having trouble with two steps in a calculation of $$\int_0^\infty\left(\frac{\sin x}{x}\right)^2\ dx$$ in a book. They take the contours $C_R$ composed of upper half-circles ...

Inverse Laplace transform and Jordan's Lemma

I'm trying find the inverse Laplace transform $f(t)$ where I have $F(p)=\dfrac{9}{p(p+3)^2}$. I know $f(t)$ already to be $1-3te^{-3t}-e^{-3t}$. I have the integral $$f(t)=\dfrac{9}{2 \pi ...

Estimate: $|f^{(3)}(i/3)|$.

Suppose $f:D(0,1)\longrightarrow \mathbb{C}$ is holomorphic, where $D(0,1)=\{z\in\mathbb{C}∣|z|<1\}$, and assume the maximum $|f(z)|\leq 2$. Estimate: $|f^{(3)}(i/3)|$. I just don't understand how ...
