Uniform approximation by polynomials with integral coefficients. II

Le Baron O. Ferguson

Vol. 26 (1968), No. 2, 273–281

Let A be a discrete subring of C of rank 2. Let X be a compact subset of C with transfinite diameter not less than unity or with transfinite diameter less than unity, void interior, and connected complement. In an earlier paper we characterized the complex valued functions on X which can be uniformly approximated by elements from the ring of polynomials A[z]. In this paper the same problem is studied where X is a compact subset of C with transfinite diameter d(X) less than unity and with nonvoid interior. It is also studied for certain compact subsets of Cn where n is any positive integer. These subsets will have the property that every continuous function holomorphic on the interior is uniformly approximable by complex polynomials. A large class of sets of this type is shown to exist.
