# Math Help - complex analysis entire function

1. ## complex analysis entire function

Show that an entire function whose real part is positive throughout the complex plane must be a constant.
Can I get some help please?

Suppose $f(z)$ satisfies the properties stated above, let's look at $\frac{1}{f(z)}$. This function is also entire since $f(z) \neq 0$.

Since $f(z) \neq 0, \; 0 for some $a\neq0$. Thus $|f(z)|$ is bounded from below by a non zero real number.

So $\left|\frac{1}{f(z)}\right|\leq\frac1a$ or in other words, $\left|\frac{1}{f(z)}\right|$ is bounded from above.

Thus by Liouville's Theorem $\frac{1}{f(z)}$ is (a non zero) constant, which implies $f(z)$ is constant too.
