  Indeed it does make sense, and these techniques are major tools
in the study of sequences: to take just one example, a common method
of establishing how fast a sequence grows involves investigating the
singularities of its generating function.

  This Wikipedia article is on the bald side, but has references at the end
to further introductory material:
