In other words, for such a function u there exists a harmonic function v defined on U such that f ≡ u + iv is holomorphic on U. Any two such functions v must differ by a constant. We call the function v a harmonic conjugate for u. To give an indication of why these statements are true we note that, given u harmonic, we seek v such that ∂v ∂u =− ≡ α(x, y) ∂x ∂y and ∂v ∂u = ≡ β(x, y) ∂y ∂x (these are the Cauchy-Riemann equations). We know from calculus that a pair of equations like this is solvable on a region with no holes precisely when ∂α ∂β = .

A converse is true provided the functions involved are defined on a domain with no holes: 22 CHAPTER 1. THE COMPLEX PLANE Theorem: If R is an open rectangle (or open disc) and if u is a real-valued harmonic function on R, then there is a holomorphic function F on R such that Re F = u. In other words, for such a function u there exists a harmonic function v defined on R such that f ≡ u + iv is holomorphic on R. Any two such functions v must differ by a real constant. 3), and if u is harmonic on U, then there is a holomorphic function F on U with Re F = u.

Plane. Let f be a holomorphic function on U. 1) γ does not change if the curve γ is smoothly deformed within the region U. Note that, in order for this statement to be valid, the curve γ must remain inside the region of holomorphicity U of f while it is being deformed, and it must remain a closed curve while it is being deformed. 5 shows curves γ1 , γ2 that can be deformed to one another, and a curve γ3 that can be deformed to neither of the first two (because of the hole inside γ3 ). 4 A Coda on the Limitations of The Cauchy Integral Formula If f is any continuous function on the boundary of the unit disc D = D(0, 1), then the Cauchy integral F (z) = 1 2πi ∂D f(ζ) dζ ζ −z defines a holomorphic function F (z) on D (use Morera’s theorem, for example, to confirm this assertion).
