# Non-constant entire functions bounded on subsets of complex plane.

which of the following are true ?

a) There exists non-constant entire function which is bounded on real and imaginary axis.

b) There exists entire function such that $$f(0)=1$$ and such that $$|f(z)|$$ is less than or equal to $$\dfrac{1}{|z|}$$, for all $$|z|$$ greater than or equal to $$5$$.

I think for a) $$e^{iz^2}$$ works. But I have no idea about (b) can I apply Liouville's theorm for (b) or picard's theorm.?

Function is bounded on and outside the disc $$|z|=5$$. To apply Liouville's theorm we have to prove function is bounded inside $$|z|=5$$. After this function becomes constant And $$f (z) =1$$ then I can contradict.

If $f$ is entire, it is continuous on the closed disk $\{|z|\le5\}$, and hence bounded.
$b)$ If such an $f$ exists, then on $|z|\geq5$, $$|f(z)| \leq \frac{1}{|z|} \leq \frac{1}{5} \hspace{4cm} (1)$$ Further, $f$ is a continuous function and $|z|\leq5$ is compact, therefore $f$ attains a maximum on $|z|\leq5$. Thus, we obtain that $f$ is bounded everywhere. By Liouville's theorem, $f$ is constant. As $f(0)=1$, thus $f \equiv 1$. This is a contradiction to $(1)$.
