You need to determine where the poles occur at.I wish to evalute integral from 0 to 2pi of $\frac{1}{13+12cost}$ using compex analysis. So I say $cosz=0.5(z+z{-1})$ and change variables thus integrand becomes:

$-i\frac{1}{13z+6z^2+6}$. What do I do from here?

Then check to see which pole(s) are in the unit circle.

Then use Residue Theory.

There is no change of variable involved, you are using an identity.I wish to evalute integral from 0 to 2pi of $\frac{1}{13+12cost}$ using compex analysis. So I say $cosz=0.5(z+z^{-1})$ and change variables thus integrand becomes:

$-i\frac{1}{13z+6z^2+6}$. What do I do from here?

Where did the -i come from?

*The poles occur at the zeros of \(6x^2+13x+6\).

Is...... there is no change of variable involved, you are using an identity... where did the -i come from?...

$\displaystyle z=e^{i\ t} \implies dz=i\ e^{i t}\ dt= i\ z\ dt \implies dt=\frac{d z}{i\ z}=-i\ \frac{d z}{z}$

Kind regards

What is being used is:Is...

$\displaystyle z=e^{i\ t} \implies dz=i\ e^{i t}\ dt= i\ z\ dt \implies dt=\frac{d z}{i\ z}=-i\ \frac{d z}{z}$

\(\cos(z)=\frac{e^{iz}+e^{-iz}}{2}\)

so:

\(\cos(t)=\frac{e^{it}+e^{-it}}{2}\)

just relabelling of the dummy variable of integration.

Of course the correct solving procedure is to set $\displaystyle \cos t = \frac{z+z^{-1}}{2},\ z=e^{i\ t}$ , that conducts to the identity...What is being used is:

$\displaystyle \int_{0}^{2 \pi} \frac{dt}{13+12\ \cos t}= -i\ \int_{C} \frac {d z}{6 z^{2}+13 z+6}$ (1)

... where C is the unit circle. The purpose of my post was to justify the 'funny term' -i in the formula...

Yes, I should have notice4d where it had come from straight off.Of course the correct solving procedure is to set $\displaystyle \cos t = \frac{z+z^{-1}}{2},\ z=e^{i\ t}$ , that conducts to the identity...
