Let's compare this with the $2\times 2$ Jacobi matrix resulting when computing the derivative of a function taking values in $\mathbb R^2$, to see if the linear approximation at a point $z_0=x_0+i y_0$ of a complex function along $d=\langle d^1,d^2\rangle$ can be formulated as a multiplication within $\mathbb C$, i.e. by multiplying a $d$-independent function $f'$ with the number $d^1+i d^2$. Given the similarity with the real function derivative, it's not too surprising that this condition is equivalent to the existence of the limit in the definition above. So we could also say | Let's compare this with the $2\times 2$ Jacobi matrix resulting when computing the derivative of a function taking values in $\mathbb R^2$, to see if the linear approximation at a point $z_0=x_0+i y_0$ of a complex function along $d=\langle d^1,d^2\rangle$ can be formulated as a multiplication within $\mathbb C$, i.e. by multiplying a $d$-independent function $f'$ with the number $d^1+i d^2$.
