# boundness of harmonic conjugates

Let $u$ be an harmonic function in the open simply connected set $U$. Then $u$ has an harmonic conjugate $v$ in $U$ (i.e. $f=u+iv$ is analytic on $U$). Suppose $u$ bounded in $U$. Can i say that $v$ is also bounded?

No. Consider $-\text{arg}(z)$ whose conjugate is $\log(|z|)$ on $\mathbb{C}-\mathbb{R}^{-}$.

why minus arg(z)? –  Federica Maggioni Dec 14 '12 at 11:12
You wrote the problem so that you're real part was bounded. If one takes the principal branch of $log$ one gets $\log(|z)|+\arg(z)$, which has bounded imaginary part. I just multiplied by $i$ to get bounded real part. –  Alex Youcis Dec 14 '12 at 11:51
