This is an integral of the form `oint_C f(z)/(z-a) dz` , where `f(z)=ze^z` and `a=i` in this case. If this meets the conditions of the Cauchy Integral Theorem we can use the Cauchy Integral Formula.

`oint_c f(z)/(z-a) dz =2pi i*f(a)`

`f(z)` must be a holomorphic function. `ze^z` is indeed an holomorphic as its infinity differentiable everywhere inside the boundary `C` .

`a` must be inside the bound curve `C` . `i` is inside a circle of radius 2 centered at `z=0` .

Therefore by the Cauchy Integral Formula:

`1/(2pi*i) [oint_C (f(z))/(z-a) dz]=1/(2pi*i) [oint_(|z|=2) (ze^z)/(z-i) dz]=1/(2pi i)*[2pi i*f(i)]=f(i)=ie^i`

`1/(2pi*i) oint_(|z|=2) (ze^z)/(z-i) dz=ie^i`
