I am trying to solve Nakahara Ex. 1.5. I have already solved part (1), but I am stuck trying to generalize the equation of (1) to prove part (2). I think I will be able to complete the proof if I can establish the following equation:

2. Relevant equations

[tex] \int dz d\overline{z} \exp({-z\overline{z}}) = \int dx dy \exp({- x^2 - y^2}) [/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

Using [itex] z = x + iy [/itex], it is obvious that both exponents are the same, but the Jacobian from the coordinate transformation does not seem to be equal to 1. Is it true that [itex] dz d\overline{z} = dx dy [/itex] ? If so, why?
