    How do I do this question?

    Show that the transformation

    w = (z+1) / (z-1)

    maps the circle |z| = 1 in the z-plane to the line |w-1| = |w+i| in the w-plane.

    The region |z| in the z-plane is mapped to the region R in the w-plane. Shade the region R on an Argand diagram.

    Rearrange to give z as a function of w. Set |z|=1 and use the fact

    I think there's a typo somewhere, because I get |w-1|=|w+1|.

    no the exam paper definitely says i, not 1. heh hold on but the first is

    w = (z - i) / (z + 1)

    sorry...

    now let me work out the answer and you can tell me if i'm right... :-)

    w = (z-i)/(z+1)

    wz + w = z - i

    z = (w+i)/(w-1)

    |z|=1 precisely when |(w+i)/(w-1)| = 1 i.e. |w+i| = |w-1|

    This is the perpendicular bisector of the line segment 1 to -1 , that is the line x+y=0

    This makes no sense.

    Do you mean |z|<1? (The interior of the disc)

    It will map to one half of the line, which you can work out by seeing which bit the origin (or any other point in the interior) maps to
