Can anybode help me with the following question: Use Taylor’s Theorem to determine the Taylor series about i for the function f(z)= z +Logz , giving an expression for the general term of the series. Also, state the largest open disc on which the function f is represented by this Taylor series. Until now I tried all derivatives, but I cannot get a general term and cannot find the largest open disc. I know that the function is analytic on the region C without x<= 0. Please help

The singularity for logz is at z=0, so the largest open disc is the disc centered at z=i and radius 1.

So we could say: z+i < 1 This is correct? Math

No. zi < 1.
