Hi.
As far as I know Complex Analysis you have just enountered a bug.
(*incorect*)
In[43]:=
(Residue[#1, {z, Infinity}] & ) /@ {1/z, Exp[2/z]}
Out[43]=
{-1, -2}
(*correct*)
In[46]:=
(Coefficient[#1, z^(-1)] & )[Normal[{1/z, Exp[2/z]} + O[z,
Infinity]^3]]
Out[46]=
{1,2}
The strange thing that Residue calls the Series function.
In[51]:=
Unprotect[Series];
Series[a___] := Null /; (Print[InputForm[series[a]]]; False)
In[52]:=
Residue[Cos[z]/z, {z, 0}]
>From In[52]:=
series[Cos[z]/z, {z, 0, 1}]
Out[52]=
1
But funnily
In[60]:=
(Residue[#1,{z,Infinity}]&)/@{1/z,Exp[2/z]}
>From In[60]:=
series[z, {z, 0, 1}]
>From In[60]:=
series[E^(2*z), {z, 0, 1}]
Out[60]=
{-1,-2}
Hence, Mathematica correctly makes the transformation 1/z->z.
Nevertheless it returns a incorrect result!
