Contour integral around semi-circle

Can one use contour integration to evaluate $\int^{\pi}_{0} \frac{1}{1-\rho*sin(\theta)}d\theta$ for $0<\rho<1$? This would be trivial if the upper limit were $2\pi$ as we could let ...

Is there a coordinate free proof of the Morrey--Kohn--Hormander identity?

The Morrey--Kohn--Hormander identity is the key to proving vanishing/existence results on bounded pseudoconvex domains in $\mathbb{C}^n$, or more generally, Stein domains. See, for instance, the ...

Laurent expansion of a principal value integral

Let $f(t)$ be a nice Hölder continuous function. Also, suppose that $f$ is even. I'm interested in evaluating integrals of the form: $$\oint (1-z)^{k+1}\int_0^1 \frac{f(t)}{(1-zt)^{n+1}}dtdz,$$ ...
