My attempt at this question... Let $g(z)= \frac{1}{f(z)-\cos z}$. Since $f(z)$ and $\cos z$ are entire and $f(z) - \cos z \neq 0, \forall {z\in{\mathbb{C}}}$ (since $\left |f(z)- cos z \right |\geq{2}$). $\Rightarrow g(z)$ is entire & $\left |g(z) \right |= \frac{1}{\left |f(z)-\cos z\right |} \leq \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}, \forall {z\in{\mathbb{C}}}$. By Liouville's Theorem, $g(z) \equiv k$ for some ${k\in{\mathbb{C}}$. $\Rightarrow \frac{1}{f(z)-\cos z} \equiv k$ for some ${k\in{\mathbb{C}}, k \neq 0$, since $f(z) - \cos z \neq 0, \forall {z\in{\mathbb{C}}}$. Hence $f(z)= \frac{1}{k} + \cos z$ Now it is given that $f(0)= i$, and $cos(0)= 1$, hence $\frac{1}{k}= i-1$. $\Rightarrow f(z)= i - 1 + \cos z$ Is this correct? Are there any other solutions? Any improvement/suggestion is welcomed! Thanks in advance!.
