# Find conformal mapping that maps set $\{(x,y)\in\mathbb{R}^2 : \operatorname{y\le 0}\}$ to unit ball.

Find conformal mapping that maps set $A=\{(x,y)\in\mathbb{R}^2 : \operatorname{y\le 0}\}$ to unit disk. I know that such a mapping exists from Riemann Theorem.

Note: I don't want full answer. I expect only some starting point hint.

Thanks

Edit:

I can use rotation by $\frac{-\pi}{2}$ on map:

$$z \mapsto \frac{z-1}{z+1}$$

So my map looks like that: $$z \mapsto e^{-i\frac{\pi}{2}} \frac{z-1}{z+1}$$

Edit 2:

$$z \mapsto \frac{e^{-i\frac{\pi }{2}}z-1}{e^{-i\frac{\pi }{2}}z+1}$$

• Doesn't it still require some improvement? Substituting -i gives infinity, obviously outside the unit disc. – D777 Feb 21 at 14:34
• Just realized, you have rotated the plane by 90 degrees in the wrong direction. – D777 Feb 21 at 14:43

A map from the complex half-plane of numbers with positive real part to the unit disc is given by $$z \mapsto \frac{z-1}{z+1}$$ For details on this see an earlier question Mapping half-plane to unit disk?
• It is $e^{i \pi/2} z$ not $e^{i \pi z/2}$. Also note that $e^{i \pi/2}=-i$ which allows for some siplification. – quid Jul 10 '15 at 15:19
• I see you just correct the first thing. Yes this is fine. You can further simplfy using $e^{i\pi/2}=-i$. – quid Jul 10 '15 at 15:20
