# Must an entire function be bounded in any open disk around the origin?

Must an entire function be bounded in any open disk around the origin? I think the answer is yes and this is my attempt at a proof:

Let $f$ be an entire function and $D$ be an open disk of radius $r$ centered at the origin. Since $f$ is entire, it can be represented by a power series $f(z) = \sum^{\infty}_{n=0}c_nz^n$ with radius of convergence $r$ for every $z \in D$. Since the power series converges in $D$, $f$ must be bounded in $D$.

Is this correct?

• Try a convergence radius strictly greater than $r$. Or the maximum modulus principle. – Hagen von Eitzen Nov 16 '13 at 23:20
• Shorter: $\overline{D}$ is compact. – Daniel Fischer Nov 16 '13 at 23:21
• An entire function can be represented by a power series with infinite radius of convergence at every point, in fact. – zibadawa timmy Nov 16 '13 at 23:21

$$\overline{D(0, R)}$$
is compact for all finite $R$, the result follows.
