We note that the definition of differentiability states Definition 1. If G is an open set in C and f : G C , then f is differentiable at a point z in G if lim h f ( z + h ) f ( z ) h exists. If f is differentiable at every point of G we say that f is differentiable on G . We let z C and consider the above limit for our specific function in terms of z f ( z ) = 1 2 ( z 2 + 2 z z z 2 ) the limit becomes 1 2 lim h ( z + h ) 2 + 2( z + h ) ( z + h ) ( z + h ) 2 z 2 2 z z + z 2 h = 1 2 lim h 2 z + 2 z h h + 2 z 2 z h h + 2 h + h h 2 h If this limit exists, it must be the same for any direction h approaches the origin in the complex plane. If we approach the limit from the real axis, we note h = h and the above reduces to 4 z + 2 h 4 z . If we approach the limit from the imaginary axis, we find h = h and the above limit reduces to 4 z 2 h 4 z ....
