    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Prove that there does not exist an analytic function on the annulus D: 1<|z|<2, s.t. F'(z) = 1/z for all z in D.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Assume F exists, then for z in D, not a negative number, F(z) = Log z + c since Log' z = 1/z... Lost
