In mathematics, a Hankel contour is a path in the complex plane which extends from [∞,δ], around the origin counter clockwise and back to [∞,−δ], where δ is an arbitrarily small positive number. The contour thus remains arbitrarily close to the real axis but without crossing the real axis except for negative values of x.
