# Cauchy Riemann equations and analyticity of a function

A

At which points if any does the function

$$f(z) = z\operatorname{Re}(z) + \bar{z}\operatorname{Im}(z)$$ satisfy the Cauchy-Riemann equations?

B

At which points, if any is this function analytic. Justify your answer.

A. I applied the Cauchy Riemann equations and found that they are satisfied at x = 1, y = -1.

B. As they are not differentiable anywhere else in C, particularly in some neighbourhood of (1, -1), they function is analytic nowhere.

Are my answers for A and B correct?

Dear Jim, A. is false. And as to B., I don't see what you mean with "they are not differentiable" . – Georges Elencwajg Apr 18 '12 at 15:09
Carelessness during differentiation cost me again. – Jim_CS Apr 19 '12 at 10:55

Incorrect. Write the function as $z^2/2+(1+i)z\bar z/2-(\bar z)^2$ and you will see that the $\bar z$-derivative is $(1+i)z/2-2\bar z$. This can't be zero unless $z=0$, because at all other points the two terms are of different absolute values. – user31373 Sep 27 '12 at 0:19
