1. 1.1

Below, whenever we write z = x + iy, we mean that x and y are real numbers

the real and imaginary parts of z.

in the standard form x + yi.

1.1. Problem 2. Express 3+5i

1

1 35i

3

5

Solution: 3+5i = 3+5i 35i = 335i

2 +52 = 34 34 i

Solution: We have to find z = x + iy so that (x + iy)2 = i. If we expand

(x + iy)2 and collect real and imaginary parts, we get (x2 y 2 ) + i(2xy). To solve

the equation (x2 y 2 ) + i(2xy) = i in C it is equivalent to solve the system of two

equations

x2 y 2 = 0

2xy = 1

in R. We may reduce this to one equation by setting p

y = x, in which

pcase the second

equation reads 2x2 = 1. Solving for x gives x = 1/2, y = 1/2 (where the

signs are the same). In other words a square root of i is given by

( 12 + i 12)

1.3. Problem 6. If z = x + iy, express z 3 in standard form.

Solution: z 3 = (x + iy)3 = x3 + 3x2 (iy) + 3x(iy)2 + (iy)3 , by the Binomial

Theorem. Collecting real and imaginary terms together (using i2 = 1 and i3 = i)

we get

(x3 3xy 2 ) + i(3x2 y + y 3 )

1.4. Problem 8. Prove the commutative law of addition holds for complex numbers: z1 + z2 = z2 + z1 .

Solution: We will appeal to the commutative law of addition for real numbers.

Suppose z1 = x1 + iy1 and z2 = x2 + iy2 . By definition (Definition 1.1.1 on page

2), z1 + z2 and z2 + z1 are given by:

z1 + z2 = (x1 + x2 ) + i(y1 + y2 )

z2 + z1 = (x2 + x1 ) + i(y2 + y1 )

x1 + x2 = x2 + x1 and y1 + y2 = y2 + y1

Each of those holds by the commutative law of addition for real numbers.

1.5. Problem 11. For z C and a R, prove the following: (a) Re(az) = aRe(z)

and Im(az) = aIm(z); (b) Re(iz) = Im(z) and Im(iz) = Re(z).

Solution to (b): Suppose z = x + iy. Then iz = ix + iiy = ix y = (y) + ix.

Thus, Re(iz) = Re(y + ix). Since both y and x are real numbers, the real part

(resp. imaginary part) of (y + ix) is y (resp. x). Now (b) follows as x = Re(z)

and y = Im(z).

1.7. Problem 14. Graph the set of points z C which satisfy the equation z 2 +

z 2 = 2 If z = x + iy, the equation is the same as (x2 y 2 ) = 1, which is a hyperbola

We compute

1.10. Problem 17. Prove that every complex number of modulus 1 has the form

cos() + i sin() for some angle .

If z = x + iy has complex modulus 1, then x2 + y 2 = 1. By the definition of

sine and cosine, if is the angle that (x, y) makes with the positive x-axis, then

x = cos() and y = sin().

1.11. Problem 18. Prove that every line or circle in C is the solution set of an

equation of the form

a|z|2 + wz + wz + b = 0

where a and b are real numbers and w is a complex number. Conversely, show that

every equation of this form has a line, circle, point, or the empty set as its solution

set

SELECTED SOLUTIONS

Lets do the case of a circle. If C is a circle of radius r around the center , then

an equation for it in complex numbers is

|z | = r

or equivalently (z )(z ) = r2 . Expanding the left hand side gives

|z|2 z z + ||2 = r2

Dividing both sides by r2 gives an equation for the circle of the required form with

a = r12 , b = ||2 /r2 , and w = /r2 .

2. 1.2

2.1. Problem 1. Show that the sequence (2 + ni)1 converges to 0.

The complex modulus of (2+ni)1 is (n2 +4)1/2 . The limit of complex numbers

(2 + ni)1 is zero because the limit of real numbers limn (n2 + 4)1/2 is zero.

2.2. Problem 2. Prove the following form of the triangle inequality: ||z| |w||

|z w|.

Either |z| = |w|, |z| < |w|, or |z| > |w|. In the first case, the left hand side is

zero and the right-hand side is nonnegative, so the inequality holds. In the second

case, we will use the usual triangle inequality |z + (w z)| |z| + |(w z)|.

||z| |w|| = |w| |z| = |z + (w z)| |z| |z| + |w z| |z| = |w z| = |z w|

The third case is similar to the second case.

2.3. Problem 3. Show that |(z + 5)1 | (|z| 5)1

The book made a mistake. For example when z = 0, the inequality you are

asked to prove is 1/5 1/5. However the inequality is true when |z| > 5, lets

prove that:

The triangle inequality gives

|z| |z + 5| + | 5| = |z + 5| + 5

So |z| 5 |z + 5|. So long as the left-hand side is positive (i.e. |z| > 5), taking

reciprocals reverses the inequality.

No, the number we are taking the nth power of is the square root of i, so this

sequence cycles through the 8 numbers

i, i, i i, 1, i, i, i i, 1, i,

over and over again.

2.5. Problem 5. For which values of z does the sequence z n converge?

If |z| < 1, then this sequence converges to 0, since |z|n 0. If |z| > 1, then

it diverges since |z|n . What about when |z| = 1? It converges when z = 1,

but diverges when z is any other number of modulus 1. (To prove this rigorously

is actually pretty difficult: you have to analyze the case where z is a root of unity

and where z is not a root of unity separately. If z is not a root of unity, then

the numbers z n spread out uniformly over the circle as you take higher and higher

powers a precise form of this is called Weyls equidistribution theorem)

So long as z 6= n for any positive integer n, (i.e. so long as z 6= in for

any integer n) no term of the series P

involves division by zero. In that case the

limit comparison test (comparing to

n2 again) shows that the series converges

absolutely.

That expression in n on the right simplifies to (1 + 1/n)n , which converges to e as

5.1. Problems 11-12. 11. For the principal branch of the log function, find log(1

i). 12. Same, for the branch

by the interval [0,2)

determined

i/4

In polar form, 1 i = 2e

. So log(1 i) = log( 2) i/4 + 2n. The

principal branch has n = 0. The branch determined by [0, 2) has n = 1.

5.2. Problem 15. Analyze the function z i defined by (1.4.7) using the principal

branch of the log function. What kind of jump does it have as z crosses the negative

real axis?

In 1.4.7, we are asked to consider z i := exp(i log(z)). For the principal branch

of log, if we write z = rei for < , then

z i = exp(i log(r) ) = exp() (cos(log(r)) + i sin(log(r)))

In particular, the modulus of z i is e . When z crosses the negative real axis, i.e.

when crosses the angle , the modulus jumps from e = 0.04... to e = 23.14....

But the argument of z i (which is log(r)) stays the same along this jump.

5.3. Problem 16. Analyze the function 1 z 2 where the square root function is

defined by the principal branch of the log function. Where does it have discontinuities?

number. Let us determine for which complex numbers z, we have

positive real. This happens when z = 1 + r, i.e. when z = 1 + r. So there are

two branch cuts, illustrated in the diagram:

6. 2.1

6.1. Problem 4. Show that the set A = {z C | Re(z) > 0} is open.

Fix w with Re(w) > 0. We must show that for some r > 0, Dr (w) A.

Equivalently, we must show that for some r > 0, the condition |z w| < r implies

the condition Re(z) > 0. In fact, we may take r = Re(w), when Dr (w) is tangent

to the imaginary axis.

6.2. Problem 5. Tell which of the following are open subsets of C, which are

closed, and which are neither:

(a) is open, (b) is neither open nor closed, (c) is closed

SELECTED SOLUTIONS

6.3. Problem 6. Find the interior, closure, and boundary for the set {z C | 1

|z| < 2}

The interior is {z C | 1 < |z| < 2}.

The boundary is {z C | |z| = 1} {z C | |z| = 2}.

The closure is {z C | 1 |z| 2}

6.4. Problem 9. Prove that Re(z), Im(z), and z are continuous functions of z.

For Re(z), we have u(x, y) = x and v(x, y) = 0 both u and v are continuous

functions in x and y, so Re(z) is continuous in z.

For Im(z), we have u(x, y) = 0 and v(x, y) = y both u and v are continuous

functions in x and y, so Im(z) is continuous in z.

For z, we have u(x, y) = x and v(x, y) = y both of these are continuous

functions ofx and y, so z is a continuous function of z.

7.2. Problem 8. At what points does log(z)/z have a complex derivative, and what

is the derivative at those points?

If we take the principal branch of log(z), this function is continuous and complex

differentiable so long as arg(z) 6= , i.e. so long as z is not a nonnegative real. We

use the product rule to determine the derivative

7.3. Problem 10. Use the Cauchy-Riemann equations to verify that f (z) = z 2 is

analytic everywhere.

If we write f (x+iy) = (x+iy)2 = u(x, y)+iv(x, y), we find that u(x, y) = x2 y 2

and v(x, y) = 2xy. We compute

ux = 2x

uy = 2y

vx = 2y

vy = 2x

7.4. Problem 11. Describe all real-valued functions which are analytic (i.e. complex differentiable) on C

If f (z) is real valued, and we write f (x + iy) = u(x, y) + iv(x, y), we must have

v(x, y) = 0 for all values of x, y. But then ux = vy = 0 and uy = vx = 0 by

the Cauchy-Riemann equations, which implies that u(x, y) = C for some constant

C C. Thus every real-valued complex-differntiable function is constant.

7.5. Problem 12. Derive the Cauchy-Riemann equations in polar coordinates

Let us write f (rei ) = u(r, ) + iv(r, ) and f (x + iy) = U (x, y) + iV (x, y). The

usual Cauch-Riemann equations apply to U and V :

Ux = Vy

Uy = Vx

u(r, ) = U (r cos(), r sin())

ur = Ux (r cos(), r sin()) cos() + Uy (r cos(), r sin()) sin()

SELECTED SOLUTIONS

and

v = Vx (r cos(), r sin())(r sin()) + Vy (r cos(), r sin())(r cos())

In that last formula, if we replace Vx with Uy and Vy with Ux , we get rur , i.e.

1

rur = v

i.e.ur = v

r

The second formula u = rvr can be obtained from a different application of the

multivariable chain rule.
