1

Define conformal at z0.

A (real differentiable) map f : 𝑅 ➝ ℂ on a region 𝑅 ⊆  ℂ is conformal at z0 if it is angle and orientation preserving at z0.

Finish the corollary: Conformal maps take orthogonal grids (in the x-y plane) to ... ?

Orthogonal grids (in the u-v plane).

4

Let f = u + iv be a holomorphic function and let Ɣ and Ɣ ̃ be two paths given by the level curves u(x, y) = C1 and v(x, y) = C2 respectively (for C1, C2 real constants). Then what sets (whenever f′(z) ̸= 0)do the paths Ɣ and Ɣ ̃ form?

Orthogonal set in the x-y plane

5

Define a biholomorphic map from 𝑅 to 𝑅'.

We call a holomorphic map f on a region 𝑅 a biholomorphic map from 𝑅 to 𝑅' = f(𝑅) if:

  1. 𝑅' is a region
  2. f is one-to-one and the inverse map f-1:𝑅' ➝ 𝑅 is also holomorphic 

6

What symbol do you use to show two regions 𝑅 and 𝑅' are biholomorphic.

f : 𝑅 ⥲ 𝑅'

7

Define simply connected.

A region 𝑅 is simply-connected if every closed path Ɣ in 𝑅 (that is Ɣ(0) = Ɣ(1)) can be "continuosuly shrunk" to a point in 𝑅. Heuristically this means 𝑅 has no holes.

9

Is ℂ٭ or ℂ\ℝ≤0 simply connected?

ℂ\ℝ≤0

10

What is the Riemann mapping theorem. 

Every simply connected region 𝑅 ≠ ℂ, there exists a biholomorphic map f:𝑅 ⥲ B1(0)

11
