Smooth counterexamples to strong unique continuation for a Beltrami system in \(\mathbb C^2\). (English) Zbl 1261.35032
Summary: We construct an example of a smooth map \(\mathbb C\to\mathbb C^2\) which vanishes to infinite order at the origin, and such that the ratio of the norm of the \(\overline z\) derivative to the norm of the \(z\) derivative also vanishes to infinite order. This gives a counterexample to strong unique continuation for a vector valued analogue of the Beltrami equation.
