1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If f(z) = [itex]\sum[/itex] an(z-z0)n has radius of convergence R > 0 and if f(z) = 0 for all z, |z - z0| < r ≤ R, show that a0 = a1 = ... = 0. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I know it is a power series and because R is positive I know it converges. And if f(z) = 0 then the sum itself would be 0 which would mean that each term must add to 0. This doesn't necessarliy imply that each coefficient ai is 0 though because they could alternate a1 = 1, a2 = -1, a3 = 2, a4 = -2 etc... Am I right in thinking this? And if so, I'm not sure how to go from there... Unless f(z) = 0 for all z implies that |z - z0| ≠ 0 somehow then for f(z) to equal 0, the ai would have to equal 0? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
