Logarithm of a Function, a Well-Posed Inverse Problem

Show more

It poses the inverse problem that consists in finding the logarithm of a function. It shows that when the function is holomorphic in a simply connected domain , the solution at the inverse problem exists and is unique if a branch of the logarithm is fixed. In addition, it’s demonstrated that when the function is continuous in a domain , where is Hausdorff space and connected by paths. The solution of the problem exists and is unique if a branch of the logarithm is fixed and is stable; for what in this case, the inverse problem turns out to be well-posed.
