## Theorem

(Weierstrass factorization theorem) Let $f \colon \mathbb{C} \rightarrow \mathbb{C}$ be entire and let $\{a_n\}$ denote the set of zeros of $f$ repeated according to multiplicity. Suppose that $f$ has a zero at $z=0$ of order $m \geq 0$ (if $0$ is a zero of order $0$ means that $f(0) \neq 0$). Then there exists an entire function $g$ and a sequence of integers $\{p_n\}$ such that $$f(z) = z^m e^{g(z)} \displaystyle\prod_{k=1}^{\infty} E_{p_n} \left( \dfrac{z}{a_k} \right),$$ where $E_{p_n}$ denotes a Weierstrass elementary factor.
