 Universal uniqueness criterion? bo198214 Administrator Posts: 1,389 Threads: 90 Joined: Aug 2007 06/19/2009, 04:53 PM (06/19/2009, 04:19 PM)Tetratophile Wrote: "the function log(z) is holomorphic on {the whole complex plane except real numbers less than 0}" : WRONG! the taylor series doesn't converge for real numbers z>2. holomorphic on $G$ does not mean that the powerseries at 1 converges at every $z\in G$. It means that $f$ is complex differentiable at every $z_0\in G$ which is equivalent that it has a powerseries development (with non-zero convergence radius) at every $z_0\in G$. The only singularity of the logarithm is 0. That means you can analytically continue $\log$ from 1 along every path that not contains 0. However if there are different paths to one point $z_1$ the values of the continuations may differ at $z_1$ by multiples of $2\pi i$ depending on how often the path revolves around the singularity 0. To exclude different values (branches) of the logarithm, one chooses the domain of the logarithm with a cut e.g. at $\Re(z)<0$. Hence there no path can revolve completely around 0 and the continuation of the logarithm to any point $z_1$ of the complex plane except the cut has only one value. « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
