Functions composition

  1. May 28, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find conformal function that maps ##D_1=\left \{ z;Re(z)>0,0<Im(z)<2\pi \right \}## on to ##D_2## where ##D_2## is unit disc.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    Ok, I haven't got any problems with conformal mapping but I have huge problems with function composition and I would need some help here...

    Firstly, ##f_1=e^z## maps from ##D_1## into unit disc without ##Re(z)>0## axis, so to this object I now apply ##f_2=\sqrt{z} ## which gives me upper half of unit disc (real exis not included!).

    Now ##f_3=\frac{z+1}{1-z}## maps the upper unit disk into first quadrant. Applying ##f_4=z^2## extends my area on to upper half plane. Rotating it with ##f_5=ze^{-i\pi /2}## and again using Mobius transformation ##f_6=\frac{i-z}{z+i}## gives me that unit disk.

    Now the question is of course what ##f=f_6\circ f_5\circ f_4\circ f_3\circ f_2\circ f_1##?

    Does it even make any sense to do that?

    ##f_1(1+i\pi)=e^{1+i\pi}=e^1 e^{i\pi}= -e## is not in the unit disc.

    Of course not. It even doesn't have to be.

    There is a typo in my original post. Instead of ##D_1=\left \{ z;Re(z)>0,0<Im(z)<2\pi \right \}## it is ##D_1=\left \{ z;Re(z)<0,0<Im(z)<2\pi \right \}##
