(b) The function f ( z ) = (2 z +3) 4 is a composition of polynomials so is analytic everywhere with derivative f ( z ) = 8(2 z + 3) 3 (by the chain rule). (c) The function f ( z ) = (3 z- 1) / (3- z ) is rational and so is analytic where z 6 = 3. By the quotient rule, its derivative is f ( z ) = 8 (3- z ) 2 . 1.5.10. Let f ( z ) = | z | and write f = u + iv and z = x + iy . Then u = p x 2 + y 2 and v = 0. We find that ∂u ∂x = x p x 2 + y 2 , ∂u ∂y = y p x 2 + y 2 ∂v ∂x = ∂v ∂y = 0 . In order for f to be analytic the Cauchy-Riemann equations must hold. That is, we need x p x 2 + y 2 = y p x 2 + y 2 = 0 which is impossible, since it requires x and y to be both simultaneously zero and nonzero. Therefore f is differentiable nowhere. Here’s another proof. Since the partial derivatives of Re( | z | ) = p x 2 + y 2 do not exist at (0 , 0), the Cauchy-Riemann theorem implies that | z | cannot be differentiable at z = 0. Suppose that f ( z ) = | z | were analytic at some z ∈ C , z 6 = 0. Then ( f ( z )) 2 = | z | 2 = z z would be analytic at z and, since z is nonzero, so too would be ( f ( z )) 2 /z = z . But we know that g ( z ) = z is analytic nowhere, so this is impossible. Therefore f ( z ) = | z | cannot be analytic at any nonzero complex number either. Hence, | z | is differentiable nowhere, i.e. is not analytic. 1.5.14. (a) According to Cauchy-Riemann equations, if f is analytic then f = ∂f ∂x = 1 i ∂f ∂y 1 so that ∂f ∂z = 1 2 ∂f ∂x + 1 i ∂f ∂y = 1 2 ( f + f ) = f . (b) If f ( z ) = z = x + iy then f is analytic so that by part (a) we have ∂fz = f = 1 . Moreover ∂f ∂x = 1, ∂f ∂y = i so that ∂f ∂ z = 1 2 ∂f ∂x- 1 i f y = 1 2 (1- 1) = 0 ....
