Problem 1:
Prove that an entire function which is not a polynomial takes on every
complex value but one infinitely often.
2
Problem 2:
Suppose r, r0 ∈ (0, 1) and h is an analytic isomorphism between the
annuli T = {z; r &lt; |z| &lt; 1} and T 0 = {z; r0 &lt; |z| &lt; 1} . Suppose also
0
that h extends to a continuous map from T to T which takes the unit
circle to itself and the circle of radius r to the circle of radius r0 . Show
that h can be extended to an analytic automorphism of the open unit
disk D that takes 0 to 0. Conclude that r = r0 .

Problem 3:
Assume φ is an analytic function from D = {0 &lt; |z| &lt; r} to C\{0, 1}.
Consider the sequence of analytic functions fn (z) = φ(z/n) on D for
n ∈ N. Prove that fn converges normally on D to either ∞ or an
analytic function f on D. Use this to prove that 0 is not an essential
singularity for φ. (This proves the Big Picard theorem.)
