    bound of an analytic function, and a bit on uniform convergence

    Another practice exam exercise:

    Suppose f is an analytic function in D = \{z:|z|<1\} for which \lVert f\rVert=\sup_{z\in F}\{(1-|z|^2)|f'(z)|\} is finite.

    (a) Prove for z\in D that |f(z)-f(0)|\leq\frac{1}{2}\lVert f\rVert \log\frac{1+|z|}{1-|z|}.

    (b) If \{f_n\} is a sequence of analytic functions in D for which

    \lim_{|z|\to 1^-}[(1-|z|^2)|f'_n(z)|]=0 for n=1,2,3,\cdots, and

    \lVert f_n-f\rVert \to 0 as n\to\infty, prove \{f_n\} converges to f uniformly on compact subsets of D.
    I can't do part (a) at all, and I'm not much further along on part (b). If I use the result of (a), all I need is to show that f_n(0)\to f(0), and then part (b) follows from Weierstrass. But I cannot show that f_n(0)\to f(0), nor can I show part (a) at all.

    I also notice that F is not explicitly defined. I presume it's just some arbitrary (but fixed) subset of D. But perhaps it's a misprint...? I don't know...

    As usual, any help would be appreciated!

    On the assumption that F is a misprint for D, it follows from the definition of \|f\| that |f'(z)|\leqslant\frac{\|f\|}{1-|z|^2}. Therefore

    |f(z)-f(0)| = \Bigl|\int_{[0,z]}f'(\zeta)\,d\zeta\Bigr| \leqslant\int_{[0,z]}|f'(\zeta)|\,d\zeta \leqslant \|f\|\int_{[0,z]}\frac1{1-|\zeta|^2}\,d\zeta.

    Now do the integral (partial fractions).
