Characterization of sets $K$ for which $H^{\infty}_K(\mathbb{D})$ is an algebra

Debendra P. Banjade and Jeremiah Dunivin

Vol. 16 (2023), No. 3, 421–429

Let K + and define the set HK(𝔻) to be the collection of all bounded analytic functions on the unit disk 𝔻 in the complex plane whose k-th derivative vanishes at zero for all k K. We prove that HK(𝔻) is an algebra precisely when + K is an abelian semigroup. In particular, we show that if K is a finite set, then K yielding an algebra is equivalent to K being a numerical semigroup. Moreover, an algorithm for constructing K when K is finite is provided. These results answer the questions posed by Ryle (2009). We then classify some of these sets and give a list of their exact representations.
