### The differentiability of the complex valued function $(Rez)(Imz)z\over|z|^2$

$$f(z) = \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} \Re(z)\Im(z)z\over|z|^2 & \quad z \neq 0 \\ 0 & \quad z = 0 \end{array} \right.$$ I want to prove that this ...

### Find similar estimate for complex numbers

According to Borwein, page 356 Prop. 2, $\left|\ln\left(\frac{4}{k}\right)-\operatorname{I}(1,k)\right|\leq 4k^2\left(8+\left|\ln k\right|\right)$ holds for $k\in\left(0,1\right]$. ...

### Does $\lim_{x \to 0}({z^2\over \overline z})$ exist? $(z\in \mathbb{C})$

I am trying to figure out if $\lim_{x \to 0}({z^2\over \overline z})$ exists or not. This is a way I though to show that this does not exist but I am not entirely sure. Let $a_n={1\over n}$ and ...

### $f:U \rightarrow \mathbb{C}$ is continuous on $U$ if and only if {$z \in U| f(z)\in V$} is open for every open set V in $\mathbb{C}$

I want to prove that if $f:U \rightarrow \mathbb{C}$ is continuous on $U$ if and only if {$z \in U| f(z)\in V$} is open for every open set V in $\mathbb{C}$. This is my rather incomplete approach to ...

### Is this log identity true?

I'm wondering if the exponent property carries forward to the complex log. In other words, for some complex numbers $z$ and $w$ does $\ln(z^w) = w\ln(z)$?

### Principal branch of the complex logarithm does not always satisfy the product formula

My book asks to prove: $\text{Ln}[i \cdot (-1+i)]$ does not equal to $\text{Ln}(i) + \text{Ln}(-1+i)$ where $\text{Ln}$ gives the principal log of the complex number. I don't see why this is true ...

### The annulus $A_{r,s}(z_0)=\{z\in \mathbb{C} \mid r<|z_0-z|< s\}$ is open

I want to prove that the set $A_{r,s}(z_0)=\{z\in \mathbb{C} \mid r<|z_0-z|< s\}$ is open. This is my attempt. Let $z \in A_{r,s}(z_0)$. Then $|z-z_0|-r>0$. Let $r'=[|z-z_0|-r]/2$. Then ...

### Find solution of equation $(z+1)^5=z^5$

I attempt to solve the equation $(z+1)^5=z^5$. My first approach is to expand the left hand side but ı get more complicated equation. So I couldn't go further. Secondly, I write equation as, since ...

### Why is Euler's formula defined for non-integer values?

Say that for some complex number $w$ $$e^{wi} = a$$ Now raise both sides to $1/4$. $$e^{wi/4} = a^{1/4}$$ Now $e^{wi/4}$ has a single defined value. Yet $a^{1/4}$ can have multiple values. So why ...

### Why is Euler's formula valid for all $n$ but not De Moivre's formula?

The Wikipedia page on De Moivre's Formula says the formula doesn't hold for non-integer $n$, since non-integer powers of a complex number can have multiple values. It then goes on to say that this ...

### Proving $\arg(zw)=\arg(z)+\arg(w)$

This is my attempt I know this is incomplete or may even be wrong. Let $θ_1 \in \arg(z)$ and $θ_2 \in \arg(w)$. Then, $θ_1+θ_2 \in \arg(z)+\arg(w)$. Also, $θ_1+θ_2 \in \arg(zw)$. Is this sufficient ...
