Hadamard Factorization Theorem

Let $f: \C \to \C$ be an entire function of finite order $\omega$.

Let $0$ be a zero of $f$ of multiplicity $m \ge 0$.

Let $\sequence {a_n}$ be the sequence of nonzero zeroes of $f$, repeated according to multiplicity.

Then $f$ has finite rank $p \le \omega$ and there exists a polynomial $g$ of degree at most $\omega$ such that:

$\ds \map f z = z^m e^{\map g z} \prod_{n \mathop = 1}^\infty E_p \paren {\frac z {a_n} }$

where $E_p$ denotes the $p$th Weierstrass elementary factor.


By Convergence Exponent is Less Than Order, $f$ has finite exponent of convergence $\tau \le \omega$.

By Relation Between Rank and Exponent of Convergence, $f$ has finite rank $p \leq \omega$.
