Do all problems.
Notation:
&iexcl; = {x : x is a real number}
B ( a , r ) = { z ∈ &pound; :| z − a | &lt; r}
D = B(0,1)
&pound; = { z : z is a complex number}
ann( a , r1 ,r2 ) = { z ∈ &pound; : r1 &lt; | z − a | &lt; r2}
For G ⊂ &pound; , let A (G ) denote the set of analytic functions on G (mapping G to &pound; ) and let
Har (G ) denote the set of harmonic functions on G (mapping G to &iexcl; ) .
