First post!
Is it true that for a complex function f([itex]{z}[/itex],[itex]\overline{z}[/itex]) [itex]\overline{\frac{∂f}{∂z}}[/itex] =[itex]\frac{∂\overline{f}}{∂\overline{z}}[/itex] I think I proved this while trying to solve a problem. If it turns out it's not true and I've made a mistake, I'll upload my 'proof' and have the mistakes pointed out :) Thanks

hi stallm!welcome to pf!
but if f(z,z*) = z* then ∂f/∂z = 0
