Residues

Limit[expr, x->x0] tells you what the value of expr is when x tends to . When this value is infinite, it is often useful instead to know the residue of expr when x equals . The residue is given by the coefficient of in the power series expansion of expr about the point .

Residue[expr,{x,x0}]the residue of expr when x equals
