Removable singularity and laurent series

How to show $z=\pm\pi$ is a removable singularity for $\frac1{\sin z}+\frac{2z}{z^2-\pi^2}$? I tried to compute the Laurent series, specifically the coefficients for $1/z,1/z^2,...$ since if we can ...

Could this be called Renormalization?

Quoted from   Space-Time Approach to Quantum Electrodynamics   by R. P. Feynman, Phys. Rev. 76, 769 1949 : We desire to make a modification of quantum electrodynamics analogous to the ...

Singularities of $e^{z - \frac{1}{z}}$

I believe $e^{z - \frac{1}{z}}$ has essential singularities at $z = 0$ and $z = \infty$ (in both cases because of a $\frac{1}{z}$ in the exponent) but I'm having a hard time proving this. How can one ...

Contour integral $\int_{|z|=1}\exp(1/z)\sin(1/z)dz$

Evaluate the contour integral $$\int_{|z|=1}\exp(1/z)\sin(1/z)\,dz$$ along the circle $|z|=1$ counterclockwise once. The singularities are $\dfrac1{\pi k},k\in\mathbb{Z}$ plus the limit point $0$. So ...

Type of singularity of $\log z$ at $z=0$

What type of singularity is $z=0$ for $\log z$ (any branch)? What is the Laurent series for $\log z$ centered at 0, if exist? If the Laurent series has the form $\sum_{k=-\infty}^{\infty} a_kx^k$, ...
