Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to prove that a limit exists at a point using the epsilon delta definition in the complex plane, but I can't seem to reach a conclusion.

Here's what I have been trying to get at:

[itex]\lim_{z\to z_o} z^2+c = {z_o}^2 +c[/itex]

[itex] |z^2+c-{z_o}^2-c|<\epsilon \ whenever\ 0<|z-z_o|<\delta[/itex]

[itex]LH=|z^2-{z_o}^2|=|z-z_o||z+z_o|[/itex]

[itex]=|z-z_o||\overline{z+z_o}|[/itex]

[itex]=|z-z_o||\bar{z}+\bar{z_o}|[/itex]

[itex]=|z\bar{z} +z\bar{z_o} -{z_o}\bar{z} -z_o\bar{z_o}|[/itex]

[itex]=| |z|^2 -|z_o|^2 +2Im(zz_o) |[/itex]

[itex]\leq||z|^2 -|z_o|^2 +2|z||z_o|| \ (because\ Im(z)\leq|z|)[/itex]

But I can't get any further. I did this much thinking I could factor it to the square of delta, but that didn't work out because of the positive 2zzo term.If anyone can help me out here, it would be great. Thanks.
