# If I have a holomorphic function on the unit disc, do I know anything about the radius of convergence of its series expansion about zero?

I'm looking at a proof that assumes only that
$f : \mathbb{D} \rightarrow \mathbb{D}$ is holomorphic with $f(0) = 0$

The first step in the proof is to "expand $f$ in a power series centered at $0$ and convergent in all of $\mathbb{D}$."

In other words, $f(z) = a_0 + a_1 z + a_2 z^2 + ...$ inside the disc. Is this a valid step? How do I know that the function's series expansion is valid in the whole disc?

I believe this might be useful. –  Tunococ May 31 '13 at 0:01

This is incorrect: you may not assume that $f$ has no singularity. Counter-example: $f(z)=\frac {1}{3}+\frac {1}{z-3}$. –  Georges Elencwajg May 31 '13 at 7:57
