Let \(f\) be holomorphic in a neighborhood of \(D_r(z_0)\). Show that for any \(s<r\), there exists a constant \(c>0\) such that \begin{align*}f_{(\infty, s)} \leq c f_{(1, r)},\end{align*} where \(\displaystyle f_{(\infty, s)} = \text{sup}_{z \in D_s(z_0)}f(z)\) and \(\displaystyle f_{(1, r)} = \int_{D_r(z_0)} f(z)dx dy\).
Note: Exercise 3.8.20 on p.107 in Stein et al is a straightforward consequence of this stronger result using the integral form of the CauchySchwarz inequality in real analysis.
