The proof of Liouville's theorem itself hinges on the Cauchy's integral theorem and bounds of the first derivative of an analytic function. I believe such a proof of fundamental theorem of algebra is difficult and looks too much "complex analytic" compared to the more algebraical proof which I have presented.<br /><br />Anyway thanks for sharing your views on this post.Paramanand Singhhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/03855838138519730072noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9004452969563620551.post-38375314321575302322013-10-31T21:38:08.074+05:302013-10-31T21:38:08.074+05:30There is a proof in the complex variable theory. T...There is a proof in the complex variable theory. This follows from Liouville's Theorem: A bounded function that is holomorphic everywhere in the complex plane, must necessarily be a constant function. The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra is now proven as follows. Let $f(z)$ be a polynomial function without any roots in $\mathbb C$. Then, $1/f$ satisfies all the criteria for Liouville's theorem and is therefore constant; therefore $f$ must be constant. <br />adnoctemhttp://adnoctem.wordpress.com/noreply@blogger.com
