(In other words, t 7→ f t is a continuous map from (- 1 , 1) to the Banach space C ( U ) .) Suppose that f has a single, simple zero in U , say z . Show that for | t | sufficiently small the function f t also has a single, simple zero in U , say z t and that the mapping t 7→ z t is continuous. What can you say in the case of a multiple zero? Define ε = min {| f ( z ) | : | z | = 1 } (the minimum exists on a compact set). Since the map t 7→ f t is continuous, we know that for each u ∈ U there exists δ > such that | t- s | < δ implies | f t ( u )- f s ( u ) | < ε . We are concerned with the case where s = 0, and u = z . For | t | < δ we have | f t ( z )- f ( z ) | < ε = min {| f ( z ) | : | z | = 1 } . Hence, we can invoke Rouch´ es theorem to conclude that f and f t ( | t | < δ ) have the same number of zeros inside the unit disc; namely, they both have a single simple zero....
