Math Help - Limit question

1. Limit question

Suppose f is Complex differentiable everywhere and that Lim|z|→∞}f(z)=1
Prove f(z) is constant

2. You have to use Liouville theorem. Find a closed ball B such that outside the modulus of f is smaller than 2, and apply that the closed ball is compact to conclude that f is bounded-

First proof: Liouville's theorem states that a holomorphic (analytic) function which is bounded must be constant, and that's exactly what happens with our function: in some circle $|f(z)|R,because \;f(z)\xrightarrow [|z| \to \infty] {} 1$

Second proof: By Cauchy's integral representation and by the estimation lemma: $|f'(z)|=\left|\frac{1}{2\pi i}\oint\limits_{|z|=R}\frac{f(w)\;dw}{(w-z)^2}\right|\leq \frac{1}{2\pi} 2\pi R \frac{\max\limits_{|z|=R} (|f(z)|)}{R^2}=\frac{\max\limits_{|z|=R} (|f(z)|)}{R} \xrightarrow [R \to \infty] {} 0$, so $f'(z)=0 \Longrightarrow f(z)$ constant.
