Domains of holomorphy

  • V. NestoridisEmail author


We give a simple proof that the notions of Domain of Holomorphy and Weak Domain of Holomorphy are equivalent. This proof is based on a combination of Baire’s Category Theorey and Montel’s Theorem. We also obtain generalizations by demanding that the non-extentable functions belong to a particular class of functions \(X=X({\varOmega })\subset H({\varOmega })\). We show that the set of non-extendable functions not only contains a \(G_{\delta }\)-dense subset of \(X({\varOmega })\), but it is itself a \(G_{\delta }\)-dense set. We give an example of a domain in \(\mathbb {C}\) which is a \(H({\varOmega })\)-domain of holomorphy but not a \(A({\varOmega })\)-domain of holomorphy.

Nous donnons une preuve simple que les notions de Domaine d’Holomorphie et Domaine Faible d’Holomorphie sont équivalentes. Cette preuve est fondée sur une combinaison du Théorème de Baire et du Théorème de Montel. Nous obtenons aussi des généralisations en demandant que les fonctions non-prolongeables appartiennent à une classe particulière de fonctions \(X = X(\Omega ) \subset H(\Omega )\). Nous montrons que l’ensemble des fonctions non-prolongeables non-seulement contient un sousensemble \(G_{\delta }\) demse de \(X(\Omega )\), mais est lui-même un ensemble \(G_{\delta }\). Nous donnons un exemple d’un domaine de \(\mathbb {C}\) qui est un \(H(\Omega )\)-domaine d’holomorphie mais pas un \(A(\Omega )\)-domaine d’holomorphie.
