Namely if the function is analytic its real and imaginary parts must have the partial derivative of all orders the function is analytic it must satifiy the Cauchy Riemann equation.

A holomorphic function is harmonic, provided it is of class C^{2}

Let the function f = u+iv be holomorphic and of class C^{2}.

By the Cauchy-Riemann equations, we have:

d^{2}u/dx^{2}=d/dx(dv/dy)=d/dy(dv/dx)=-d^{2}u/dy^{2}

Which proves that u is harmonic. Similar reasoning proves the same result for v, and thus f is harmonic.
