Q. (a) State Liouville's Theorem

(b) Suppose that f is analytic in C and satisfies f(z + m + in) = f(z) for all integers m,n . Prove f is constant.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

(a) Liouville's Theorem - If f is bounded and analytic in C, then f is constant.

(b) I'm guessing I need to use Liouville's Theorem here i.e. need to show the f is bounded. But I'm so confused! The question states that f(z + m + in) = f(z), so f gives the same value regardless of the z. Doesn't this mean that f is constant?!

Could someone please point me in the right direction? Thanks for any help :)
