Laurent Series and the Residue Theorem
In Section 3.5 we looked briefly at functions with isolated singularities. It is clear that a function f with an isolated singularity at a point c cannot have a Taylor series centred on c. What it does have is a Laurent1 series, a generalized version of a Taylor series in which there are negative as well as positive powers of z — c.
