• .Before proceeding to the definition of an analytic function. we first recall the notion of an open set. {z E CI - 1 < Re(z) < 1 } are not open due to the presence of one of the restrictive inequalities: < or >. p) c U.1 < Re( z) < 1 } are two example of open sets. We are now ready to define analytic functions.18 A subset U c C is open if for each Zo E U there exists a p > 0 such that D(zo. Remark 2. the two sets {z and / EC Ilzl < 1 }. { z ~C I -". . t 23 -.19 For this class. On the other hand. it will be enough to know that a set is open if it is defined using only the ''. r".open'' inequalities: < For example the unit disk or >. {z and the strip E C Ilzl < 1 }. The "rest of this courSe will be about studying properties of analytic functions. Definition 2.
