Then look at the real and imaginary parts of f'(z) I using ∆z = ∆x, and ∆z = i∆y. We find: ∂u ∂v ∆z = ∆x: f'(z) = +i ∂x ∂x ∂v ∂u ∆z = i∆y f'(z) = -i ∂y ∂y Equating coefficients gives us the result. Proving the converse is beyond the scope of this course. (Basically, one proves that the above formula for f'(z) works as a derivative.) Examples 2 2 Show that f(z) = x - y i is nowhere analytic. Now let us fiddle with the CR equations. Start with ∂u ∂v ∂u ∂v = and =∂x ∂y ∂y ∂x and take ∂/∂x of both sides of the first, and ∂/∂y of the second: 2 2 2 2 ∂u ∂v ∂u ∂v and 2 = ∂x∂y 2 = - ∂x∂y ∂x ∂y Combining these gives 2 ∂u 2 ∂u 2+ 2=1 ∂x ∂y u is harmonic Similarly, we see that v is harmo...
