 5h comment Why does $\frac{1}{z} + \sum_{n \neq 0}\frac{1}{z-n}$ diverge while $\frac{1}{z} + \sum_{n \neq 0}\frac{1}{z-n} + \frac{1}{n}$ converge? @user1952009. Thanks. I understand how to show the second series converges but my question is, if that is true, then why does the first series not converge? Are they not equivalent? I think you can get the second series by adding and subtracting $\frac{1}{n}$ from the first, which doesn't change its value. So why doesn't the first series converge? 6h comment Why does $\frac{1}{z} + \sum_{n \neq 0}\frac{1}{z-n}$ diverge while $\frac{1}{z} + \sum_{n \neq 0}\frac{1}{z-n} + \frac{1}{n}$ converge? Ok, I edited the summations to account for the singularity at the origin, but my question remains. 6h revised Why does $\frac{1}{z} + \sum_{n \neq 0}\frac{1}{z-n}$ diverge while $\frac{1}{z} + \sum_{n \neq 0}\frac{1}{z-n} + \frac{1}{n}$ converge? edited in response to comments 17h asked Why does $\frac{1}{z} + \sum_{n \neq 0}\frac{1}{z-n}$ diverge while $\frac{1}{z} + \sum_{n \neq 0}\frac{1}{z-n} + \frac{1}{n}$ converge? 19h comment Let $f(z) = \frac{\pi^2}{\sin^2(\pi z)}$. For some $z=n$, show it has a pole of order 2. Also, should we add that the limit we are looking for exists, is finite, and is also non-zero? 19h comment Let $f(z) = \frac{\pi^2}{\sin^2(\pi z)}$. For some $z=n$, show it has a pole of order 2. Also a helpful approach. Thank you! 19h comment Let $f(z) = \frac{\pi^2}{\sin^2(\pi z)}$. For some $z=n$, show it has a pole of order 2. Thanks! This is exactly what I was hoping for. 19h accepted Let $f(z) = \frac{\pi^2}{\sin^2(\pi z)}$. For some $z=n$, show it has a pole of order 2. 23h asked Let $f(z) = \frac{\pi^2}{\sin^2(\pi z)}$.

Not sure what you are implying if $u_n$ is as you defined. May 3 comment Prove that a family of harmonic functions is a normal family I agree the maximum principle should be useful but how does that generalize to a family of harmonic functions? It only gives bounds on each individual harmonic function $u$ rather than the family $\mathcal{F}$.

I will have to do my proof another way. Apr 28 comment Suppose $u,v \in \mathbb{C}$ are in the open unit disk. Is $|u|^n - |v|^n \leq |u - v|^n$? Thank you for pointing out this easy counter-example.

So is it true then that this Laurent series converges as long as $1 < |z| <\infty$ holds? Hence, it converges within the upper bound of the annulus in the question. Apr 26 awarded Mortarboard
