Complex Analysis-Analytic Functions
1. Prove that there is no analytic function inside
Code:

`z:0<|z|<1`
such as every z in this region satysfies:
Code:

`f^2(z)=z`
.

2. Let f be analytic at the annulus:
Code:

` D=z:0<|z-a|<r`
.
Prove that if f has an antideriative function then Res(f,a)=0 .

Hope you'll be able to help me

Thanks a lot!

Regarding #2, what is a "former" function?

For #1, suppose that such a function exists, and show that the Cauchy-Riemann equations are not satisfied at z=0.
Or you can differentiate implicitly with respect to $z$ and show that $f'(z)$ cannot be analytic at $0$.

For #2, suppose that an antiderivative exists. Show that this implies that the integral along a simple closed contour inside the annulus vanishes... so what if the interior of the contour contains the point $z=0$?

We can't use Cauchy-Riemann,because f isn't analytic at z=0...
How can we solve this problem?

2 is completely understandable...

Thanks @!

I'm sorry, I hadn't seen the point 0 was excluded. I hadn't had my coffee just yet! :)

One way which I can think of is this : a function analytic inside a domain maps a closed contour to a closed contour. So assume there exists such a function. Now take a simple closed contour around the origin, and show that $f$ does not map it to a closed contour (use the argument principle, and the fact that $2f(z)f'(z)=1$ inside the punctured disc).
