    Finding the Real/Imaginary Part of f(z), g(z)

    Find the real and imaginary parts u(x,y), v(x,y) of the following functions:

    f(z) = z^3
    g(z) = \frac {e^z}{z}

    What is this? Is this partial derivatives?

    For #2

    z= x + iy

    e^z = e^(x+iy) = e^x e^(iy) = e^x[cos(y)+isin(y)]

    e^z/z = e^x[cos(y)+isin(y)]/(x + iy)

    multiply top and bottom by x - iy and collect real and imaginary parts

    For # 1 I think you're just going to have to multiply out (x+iy)^3

    using (a+b)^3 = a^3 +3a^2b + 3ab^2 + b^3
