function f from A to B is a rule, which assigns each
z0 ∈ A to a unique element w0∈ B . The number w0
is called the value of f at z0 .

set D is said to be differentiable at z0 ∈ D if the limit

lim
z → z0 z − z0
exists. It is denoted by f ′(z 0 ) .
Remarks:
• The function f is said to be differentiable on D
if it is differentiable at every point of D .
• The points at which f (z) is not differentiable are
called singular points of the function.

be harmonic function if
• 𝑢𝑢 has continuous second order partial derivatives
in 𝐷𝐷.
• 𝑢𝑢 satisfies the condition
𝑢𝑢𝑥𝑥𝑥𝑥 + 𝑢𝑢𝑦𝑦𝑦𝑦 = 0 in 𝐷𝐷.

Harmonic Functions:
Harmonic conjugate:
Definition:
If 𝑢𝑢 + 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖 is analytic, then 𝑢𝑢 and 𝑣𝑣 are harmonic
functions and 𝑣𝑣 is said to be the harmonic conjugate
of 𝑢𝑢.
Remarks:
Suppose 𝑢𝑢 + 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖 is analytic. Then 𝑣𝑣 + 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖 need not be
analytic. For example 𝑢𝑢 = 𝑥𝑥 2 − 𝑦𝑦 2 and 𝑣𝑣 = 2𝑥𝑥𝑥𝑥..
If 𝑢𝑢 and 𝑣𝑣 are two harmonic functions, then 𝑢𝑢 + 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖
need not be analytic. For example 𝑢𝑢 = 𝑥𝑥 2 − 𝑦𝑦 2
and 𝑣𝑣 = 4𝑥𝑥𝑥𝑥.

## The transformation 𝑤𝑤 = 𝑠𝑠𝑠𝑠𝑠𝑠𝑠𝑠

Consider the transformation 𝑤𝑤 = sin 𝑧𝑧
Let 𝑤𝑤 = 𝑢𝑢 + 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖, 𝑧𝑧 = 𝑥𝑥 + 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖
∴ 𝑢𝑢 + 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖 = sin 𝑥𝑥 + 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖
= sin 𝑥𝑥 cos 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖 + cos 𝑥𝑥 sin 𝑖𝑖𝑖𝑖
= sin 𝑥𝑥 cos ℎ𝑦𝑦 + 𝑖𝑖 cos 𝑥𝑥 sin ℎ𝑦𝑦

conformal in 𝐷𝐷.

If 𝑧𝑧 = 𝑎𝑎 is a singular point of the function 𝑓𝑓(𝑧𝑧) and if
there exists a neighborhood of 𝑧𝑧 = 𝑎𝑎 containing no
other singular point of 𝑓𝑓(𝑧𝑧), then 𝑧𝑧 = 𝑎𝑎 is said to be
an isolated singular point of 𝑓𝑓(𝑧𝑧).
Example:

## Non-isolated singular points:

If 𝑓𝑓(𝑧𝑧) infinity of singular points in every neighborhood
of 𝑧𝑧 = 𝑎𝑎, then 𝑧𝑧 = 𝑎𝑎 is a non-isolated singular point,
i.e) , a limit point of the set of singular points of f(z).

Meromorphic Functions:
Definition:
Meromorphic Function:
A function which has no singularities in a region other
than a finite number of poles is said to be
meromorphic in that region.
Theorem:
Suppose

ii) 𝑓𝑓(𝑧𝑧) is a meromorphic function in 𝐷𝐷.
iii) 𝐶𝐶 is a simple positively oriented curve in 𝐷𝐷, not
passing through a pole or zero of 𝑓𝑓(𝑧𝑧).

number of zeroes and number of poles of 𝑓𝑓(𝑧𝑧) in the
interior of 𝐶𝐶, the zeroes and poles being counted as
many times as their orders.
Rouche’s theorem:
Let 𝑓𝑓 and 𝑔𝑔 be meromorphic in a domain 𝐷𝐷 ⊆ ℂ and
have only finitely many zeroes and poles in 𝐷𝐷.
Suppose that 𝐶𝐶 is a simple closed contour in 𝐷𝐷 such
that no zeroes or poles of 𝑓𝑓 or 𝑔𝑔 lie on 𝐶𝐶, and
|𝑔𝑔(𝑧𝑧)| < |𝑓𝑓(𝑧𝑧)| on 𝐶𝐶
