a contour integral device
 
Hi, I'm reading a book and I need to know how to evaluate this integral :



[TEX]\frac{1}{2\pi i}\int_{c-i\infty}^{c+i\infty}\frac{y^s}{s}ds[/TEX]


/ \frac{1}{2\pi i}\int_{c-i\infty}^{c+i\infty}\frac{y^s}{s}ds forgotten how to get latex in a post again

I know it equals 0 on (0,1), 1/2 for y = 1 and 1 for y > 1 but I can't find a proof anywhere.


Perhaps someone recognises it and knows a page online or a book where I could find it?

Encapsulate the \(\LaTeX\) in backslash left braket and backslash right bracket. For inline use parentheses.

\[\frac{1}{2\pi i}\int_{c-i\infty}^{c+i\infty}\frac{y^s}{s}ds\]

Thanks.

This (without the easier y=1 case) is a lemma that appears in the proof of [URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perron%27s_formula"]Perron's formula[/URL]. [URL="https://abel.math.harvard.edu/archive/213b_spring_05/perron_formula_without_error_estimate.pdf"]Here[/URL] is a reference I found.

Thanks a lot. That's just the sort of thing I was looking for.
