The partial differential equation that can be written in complex form as follows:
where , and that can be reduced to the elliptic system
in the real independent variables and . The homogeneous Dirichlet problem in a disc : , where the radius is as small as one pleases, for the Bitsadze equation has an infinite number of linearly independent solutions . The Dirichlet problem for the inhomogeneous equation in the disc is normally solvable according to Hausdorff, since it is neither a Fredholm problem nor Noetherian; in a bounded domain containing a segment of the straight line , this problem is not even a Hausdorff problem, even though the homogeneous problem has only one zero solution .
