(2) Let the degrees of the polynomials

 

P(z) =

a 0 + a 1 z + a 2 z 2 +

(a n = 0)

and

 

Q(z) =

b 0 + b 1 z + b 2 z 2 +

be such that m n + 2. Show that if all the zeros of Q(z) are interior to a simple closed contour C, then

C

Solution. (a) In the disk |z 2| < 2, (3z 3 +2)/((z 1) 2 (z 2 +9)) has one singularity at 1. Therefore,

When x = ±(N + 1/2)π,

| sin z| ≥ | sin x| = 1

When y = ±(N + 1/2)π,

| sin z| ≥ | sinh y| = sinh((N + 1/2)π)

Obviously, sinh((N + 1/2)π) > 1 for N 0. Therefore,

| sin(z)| ≥ 1
