On the Distribution of Zero Sets of Holomorphic Functions

  • B. N. Khabibullin
  • A. P. Rozit


Let M be a subharmonic function with Riesz measure ν M in a domain D in the n-dimensional complex Euclidean space ℂ n , and let f be a nonzero function that is holomorphic in D, vanishes on a set ZD, and satisfies |f| ⩽ expM on D. Then restrictions on the growth of ν M near the boundary of D imply certain restrictions on the dimensions or the area/volume of Z. We give a quantitative study of this phenomenon in the subharmonic framework.
