We generalize Chirka’s theorem on the extension of functions holomorphic in a neighbourhood of Γ(F)∪(∂D×D) – where D is the open unit disc and Γ(F) is the graph of a continuous D-valued function F – to the bidisc. We extend holomorphic functions by applying the Kontinuitätssatz to certain continuous families of analytic annuli, which is a procedure suited to configurations not covered by Chirka’s theorem.
