I know complex total differentiation is defined in analytic function theory.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]df = f'(z) dz[/tex]

[tex]z = x + iy, dz = dx + idy[/tex]

Is there complex partial differentiation?

Given a real value function

[tex]F(z^*, z, t)[/tex]

How would you define

[tex]\partial F\over\partial z[/tex]

[tex]\partial F\over\partial z^*[/tex]

?
