…
►Then $z={z}_{0}$ is an

*isolated singularity*of $f(z)$. …Lastly, if ${a}_{n}\ne 0$ for infinitely many negative $n$, then ${z}_{0}$ is an*isolated essential singularity*. … ► … ► … ►In any neighborhood of an isolated essential singularity, however small, an analytic function assumes every value in $\u2102$ with at most one exception. …##### 2: 32.2 Differential Equations

►be a nonlinear second-order differential equation in which $F$ is a rational function of $w$ and $dw/dz$, and is

*locally analytic*in $z$, that is, analytic except for isolated singularities in $\u2102$. In general the singularities of the solutions are*movable*in the sense that their location depends on the constants of integration associated with the initial or boundary conditions. An equation is said to have the*Painlevé property*if all its solutions are free from*movable branch points*; the solutions may have movable poles or movable isolated essential singularities (§1.10(iii)), however. …##### 3: 31.13 Asymptotic Approximations
