Complex Analysis

Analytic functions

A function is holomorphic if it is complex differentiable in a neighborhood of every point in its domain.

A function is analytic if it can be written as a convergent power series in a neighborhood of every point in its domain.

It can be showen that holomorphic functions are complex analytic, and complex analytic functions are holomorphic.

Liouville’s theorem

Let f(z) be an analytic function on the complex plane. If f(z) is bounded, then f(z) is constant.

Möbius transformations

A Möbius transformation can be written in the form

\begin{align} f(z) = \frac{az + b}{cz + d} \end{align}

where a, b, c, and d are complex numbers.

sums of power series

exponential and logarithm functions

spherical representation

Cauchy’s theorem

If U is an open, simply-connected subset of ℂ, f(z): U → ℂ holomorphic, and γ a rectifiable curve, then

\begin{align} \oint_\gamma f(z) \; dz = 0 \end{align}
