Integrating over the Cylinder's Surface

Here we restrict z to the upper half-space. We will treat z=0 below.

Here is the limit of the integral for z> 0 (CylinderIntegranddθ) in the limit as z → 0.

Here is the limit of the integral z=0, it is not obvious that the limit and its value at z=0 are the same. (the following evaluation will take about 10-20 seconds)

The limit as z -> 0 and the integrand at z = 0 are the same, so we can use a single integrand
