# Radius of convergence of entire function

Let $f$ be an entire function on the complex plane.

Is the radius of convergence of $f$ around any point $z_0$ infinite? If so, why?

Thank you.

A function $$f: \mathbb{C} \to \mathbb{C}$$ is said to be entire if it is holomorfic in the all complex plane, but using the Cauchy's Integral Formula, we have that a holomorfic function in a region is also analytic in this same region region. Therefore, therefore an entire function $$f$$ is analytic in the all complex plane, but we also have that the radius of convergente of a series centered in a point $$z_0$$ is the distance between $$z_0$$ and the nearest singularity of the series, in that case, it is going to be infinite.
• We know from the definition of an analytic function that in some neighborhood of every point in it's domain it can be represented by power series. So for an entire function it means that for every point $a \in \mathbb{C}$ we have the equality $f(z)=\sum_{k \ge 0} c_k \cdot (z-a)^k$ in some neighborhood of $a$. I don't understand why do we get the radius is $\infty$. Can you please elaborate on that a little bit more? The link you provided doesn't answer the question actually :(( Apr 4, 2022 at 16:48
• Notice that the proof did not depend on the radius of the disk $D$, so it can be taken arbitrarily large. Does that make sense? Apr 6, 2022 at 8:57
