I asked a complex analysis question here that got a number of views but no comments or answers. I am aware that some questions just do not attract the interest of the SE community, but I feel that this one probably should, since it has to do with a very basic and interesting property of analytic functions.

I am worried that since it has been several days since posting, new people will not be looking at it. I of course do not want to just repost the question to avoid cluttering the site. I did edit it to rephrase it as a conjecture, but still do not have an answer.

Given that I do not have enough reputation to post a bounty, is there any legitimate way to attract new attention to my question?

  • $\begingroup$ @AlexanderGruber Thanks, I think that gave me the boost I needed, and I can now offer my own bounty as well. $\endgroup$ Jul 13, 2013 at 0:20

There are two ideas that come to mind.

  1. Improve the question: add diagrams, background, show more work, etc.
  2. Start a bounty.
