Continuing my blogging adventures at the Last Drop Cafe in Claremont, CA:
CauchyReimann Equations
Let the complexvalued function f(z), where z = x+i*y, be defined in the parametric form:
f(z) = u(x,y) + i*v(x,y) where u(x,y) = Re(f(z)) and v(x,y) = Im(f(z)).
Then by the definition of the derivative:
f(z) = lim x0 → x [(f(z) + x0)  f(z))/(x  x0)]
= lim x0 → x [(u(x +x0, y)  u(x, y) + i*v(x + x0, y)  i*v(x, y))/(x  x0)]
= du/dx + i*dv/dx (I)
Also:
f(z) = lim y0 → y [(f(z + y0)  f(z))/(i*y  i*y0)]
= lim y0 → y [(u(x, y + y0)  u(x, y) + i*v(x, y + y0)  i*v(x, y))/(i*(y  y0))]
= i*(lim y0 → y [(u(x, y + y0)  u(x, y) + i*v(x, y + y0)  i*v(x, y))/(y  y0)])
= i*du/dy + dv/dy (II)
Taking the real and imaginary parts of (I) and (II):
du/dx = dv/dy and du/dy = dv/dx
The CauchyRiemann equations can be used to determine whether f(z) is differentiable and if so, where.
Two Quick Examples
1. z^2 = (x^2  y^2) + 2*i*x*y
u=x^2  y^2
v=2*i*x*y
du/dx = 2*x, dv/dy = 2*x
du/dy = 2*y, dv/dx = 2*y (note the negative sign in front of du/dy!)
Since the CauchyRiemann equations hold, and without restriction, then z^2 is differentiable for all z. And:
df/dz = 2*x + 2*i*y = 2*(x+i*y) = 2*z
2. e^z = e^(x+i*y) = e^x*cos y + i*e^x*sin y
u=e^x*cos y
v=e^x*sin y
du/dx = e^x*cos y, dv/dy = e^x*cos y
du/dy = e^x*sin y, dv/dx = e^x*sin y
Since the CauchyRiemann equations hold, and without restriction, then e^z is differentiable for all z. And:
df/dx = e^x*cos y + i*e^x*sin y = e^z
I used (I), but using (II) will garner the same result.
That is the CauchyRiemann equations in a nutshell!
