Identity theorem

🔗
Essentially, defining an holomorphic function on any open subset, no matter how small, also uniquely defines it everywhere.
🔗
This is basically why it makes sense to talk about analytic continuation at all.
🔗
One way to think about this is because the Taylor series matches the exact value of an holomorphic function no matter how large the difference from the starting point.
🔗
Therefore a holomorphic function basically only contains as much information as a countable sequence of numbers.
