Hello to all.
Consider the following function.
f[z_]:=Log[z^2-1]
Here is plots of the real and imaginary part
Show[MapIndexed[Plot[#1[f[z]], {z, -3, 3}, PlotStyle -> Hue[#2[[1]]/3],
DisplayFunction -> Identity] & , {Re, Im}],
DisplayFunction -> $DisplayFunction, Frame -> {True, True, False,
False}, Axes -> False]
Here is contour plots of the real and imaginary part
Show[GraphicsArray[ContourPlot[#[f[x+I
y]],{x,-2,2},{y,-2,2},PlotPoints®100,Contours®50,ContourShading®False,DisplayFunction®Identity]&/@{Re,Im},Frame®True],ImageSize®600]
Here is plots of the real and imaginary part in the complex domain.
Show[GraphicsArray[(Plot3D[#1[f[x + I*y]], {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2},
PlotPoints -> 40, DisplayFunction -> Identity] & ) /@
{Re, Im}, Frame -> True], ImageSize -> 600]
The integrand clearly has a branch cut between -1 and 1.
Integrate fails to give the right answer as a quick check with
NIntegrate confirms.
Integrate[Log[z^2 - 1], {z, 1/10 - I, 1/10 + I}]
(-(1/5))*I*(ArcTan[20/199] - 5*(-4 + Pi + ArcTan[400/39999] +
Log[40001/10000]))
{N[%], NIntegrate[Sqrt[z^2 - 1], {z, 1/10 - I, 1/10 + I}]}
{0. + 0.5178786980875206*I, 0. + 0.08305882917250686*I}
Apparently the problem arises from the branch cut.
How can we get the correct answer within Mathematica (version 5.2)?
Thanks a lot for any response
Dimitris
