Abstract: In this talk, we will present a full proof of a result one hears about often during a first course in complex analysis, but a proof of which is very rarely given. It is the Looman-Menchoff theorem, which asserts that if is an open subset of and if is a continuous function such that all the first order partial derivatives of exist and such that the Cauchy-Riemann equations are satisfied, then is holomorphic. This result, while simple-sounding, is quite nontrivial!
