Problem

Cauchy Riemann.png

Consider the complex number in polar form , and the complex function in polar form .

Show that the Cauchy-Riemann equations in polar form are

.

Solution

It is important to know the Cartesian representation of the complex number and the Cauchy-Riemann equations first.

.

Now use the multivariate product rule to take the the derivatives of , , , and .

For the function :

.

Since , , , and , we get

.

We repeat the same calculations for .

.

Now use the Cauchy-Riemann equations in Cartesian form and make the right substitutions.

Therefore,
