ACM95a/100a Lecture Notes Niles A. Pierce Caltech 2008 Taylor Series Theorem 1 If f ( z ) is analytic for | z - z 0 | < R then f ( z ) = X k =0 f ( k ) ( z 0 ) k ! ( z - z 0 ) k (1) uniformly in | z - z 0 | ≤ ρ < R ( i.e. f ( z ) is represented uniformly by its Taylor series in the closed disc | z - z 0 | ≤ ρ ) . Proof: For convenience substitute z z + z 0 and let h ( z ) f ( z + z 0 ) = X k =0 f ( k ) ( z 0 ) k ! z k (2) so h ( z ) is analytic for | z | < R and we must show uniform convergence to h ( z ) for | z | ≤ ρ < R . Consider the positive circle C 0 : | z | = ρ 0 with ρ < ρ 0 < R . R ρ 0 ρ 0 C 0 By the Cauchy integral formula h ( z ) = 1 2 πi Z C 0 h ( ξ ) ξ - z dξ, for | z | < ρ 0 . (3) If n is a positive integer and w 6 = 1 then note that 1 1 - w = 1 + w + w 2 + ··· + w n - 1 + w n 1 - w (4) as can be readily verified by multiplying by 1 - w . Setting w = z/ξ (and dividing through by ξ ) we have 1 ξ - z = 1 ξ + z ξ 2 + ··· + z n - 1 ξ n + z n ξ n 1 ξ - z . (5) Hence, h ( z
