## Definition

Let $f: \C \to \C$ be a function.

Suppose there is $a \in \C$ such that $\map f a = 0$.

Then $a$ is said to be a **zero of multiplicity $k$** if and only if there exists non-zero $L \in \R$ such that:

- $\ds \lim_{z \mathop \to a} \dfrac {\cmod {\map f z} } {\cmod {z - a}^k} = L$

This definition needs to be completed.In particular: Needs to be expanded so as to be relevant to other fields, not just $\C$.You can help $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ by adding or completing the definition.To discuss this page in more detail, feel free to use the talk page.When this work has been completed, you may remove this instance of `{{DefinitionWanted}}` from the code.If you would welcome a second opinion as to whether your work is correct, add a call to `{{Proofread}}` the page. |
