Cauchy-Riemann Equations in Polar Form

Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems.

8. Let a function f (z) = u + i v be differentiable at a nonzero point z0 = r0 e(iθ0). Use the expressions for ux and vx found in Exercise 7, together with the polar form (6) of Cauchy-Riemann equations, to rewrite the expression
f ΄(z0) = ux + i vx


f ΄(z0) = e-iθ (ur + i vr),
where ur and vr are to be evaluated at (r0, θ0).

Exercise 7. Solve equations (2) for ux and uy to show that

ux = ur cos θ - (uθ sin θ) / r , uy = ur sin θ + (uθ cos θ) / r.

Then use these equations and similar ones for vx and vy to show that equations (4) are satisfied at a point z0 if equations (6) are satisfied there. Thus complete the verification that equations (6) are the Cauchy-Riemann equations in polar form.

Eqn (2): ur = ux cos θ + uy sin θ, uθ = - ux r sin θ + uy r cos θ

Eqn (4): ux = vy, uy = - vx

Eqn (6): r ur = vθ, uθ = - r vr
