QUALIFYING EXAMINATION JANUARY 2001 MATH 530 - Prof. Eremenko 1. Suppose that f ( z ) = X n =1 a n z - n is a Laurent series at infinity of a rational function f , which has only simple poles. Prove that there exist an integer m and complex numbers c j , b j , such that a n = m X j =1 c j b n j , n = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . . 2. Find the principal value of the integral p . v . Z -∞ cos x 1 + x 3 dx. 3. Suppose that u is a harmonic function in the region { z : | z | < 1 , Im z > 0 } , continuous in the closure of this region, and having the property lim y 0+ u ( x + iy ) /y = 0 , for all x ( - 1 , 1) , Prove that u 0. 4. Recall that a map f : X Y is called surjective if for every y Y there exists x X such that f ( x ) = y . a) Does there exist a surjective holomorphic map of the complex plane onto the unit disc? b) Does there exist a surjective holomorphic map of the unit disc onto the complex plane? If your answer is “yes”, you have to give an example, if it is “no”, you have

Unformatted text preview: to prove that such map does not exist. In your proof, you can use any fact, proved in Ahlfors’ book, but you have to state this fact precisely. 5. a) What is the radius of convergence of the series in the right hand side of this equation: Log z z-1 = ∞ X n =0 a n ( z-2) n ? 1 Here Log is the principal branch of the logarithm, Log( z ) = Log | z | + i Arg z, where | Arg z | < π. b) Will your answer change, if we consider some other branch of the logarithm in the same region | Arg z | < π ? 6. Does there exist an analytic function f in the unit disc, with the following property f (1 /n ) = n 2 + n for n = 1 , 2 , 3 ,.... Give an example or prove that it does not exist. 2...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
