I'm stuck on this question:
For the transformation:
show that as z moves along the real axis, w moves along a circle centre O and radius 1.
I know that since z only moves on the real axis, it has only an x component, so I can replace z with x, but I'm stuck after that. Do I rewrite w as u+iv? If so I get a very complicated equation which doesn't look like the equation of a circle. I'd be grateful of any help.
