# Fungrim entry: 231a99

Symbol: ComplexZeroMultiplicity $\mathop{\operatorname{ord}}\limits_{z=c} f(z)$ Multiplicity (order) of complex zero
ComplexZeroMultiplicity(f(z), For(z, c)), rendered $\mathop{\operatorname{ord}}\limits_{z=c} f(z)$, gives the root multiplicity (order of vanishing) of $f(z)$ at the point $z = c$.
If $f$ is holomorphic at $c$ and $f(c) \ne 0$, the multiplicity is zero.
If $z = c$ is a pole of $f(z)$, returns $-n$ where $n$ is the order of the pole.
In other words, this operator returns the order of the first nonzero term in the Laurent series of $f(z)$ at $z = c$.
In the special case where $f(z) = 0$ in a neighborhood of $c$, the order is $\infty$.
The result is undefined if $f(z)$ is not meromorphic at $c$.
The special expression For(z, c) declares z as a locally bound variable within the scope of the arguments to this operator.
