Bergman space

In complex analysis, functional analysis and operator theory, a Bergman space is a function space of holomorphic functions in a domain D of the complex plane that are sufficiently well-behaved at the boundary that they are absolutely integrable. Specifically, for 0 < p < , the Bergman space Ap(D) is the space of all holomorphic functions in D for which the p-norm is finite:

The quantity is called the norm of the function f; it is a true norm if . Thus Ap(D) is the subspace of holomorphic functions that are in the space Lp(D). The Bergman spaces are Banach spaces, which is a consequence of the estimate, valid on compact subsets K of D:






Thus convergence of a sequence of holomorphic functions in Lp(D) implies also compact convergence, and so the limit function is also holomorphic.

If p = 2, then Ap(D) is a reproducing kernel Hilbert space, whose kernel is given by the Bergman kernel.

Special cases and generalisations

If the domain D is bounded, then the norm is often given by

where is a normalised Lebesgue measure of the complex plane, i.e. dA = dz/Area(D). Alternatively dA = dz/π is used, regardless of the area of D. The Bergman space is usually defined on the open unit disk of the complex plane, in which case . In the Hilbert space case, given , we have

that is, A2 is isometrically isomorphic to the weighted p(1/(n+1)) space.[1] In particular the polynomials are dense in A2. Similarly, if D = ℂ+, the right (or the upper) complex half-plane, then

where , that is, A2(ℂ+) is isometrically isomorphic to the weighted Lp1/t (0,∞) space (via the Laplace transform).[2][3]

The weighted Bergman space Ap(D) is defined in an analogous way,[1] i.e.

provided that w : D [0, ) is chosen in such way, that is a Banach space (or a Hilbert space, if p = 2). In case where , by a weighted Bergman space [4] we mean the space of all analytic functions f such that

and similarly on the right half-plane (i.e. ) we have[5]

and this space is isometrically isomorphic, via the Laplace transform, to the space ,[6][7] where

(here Γ denotes the Gamma function).

Further generalisations are sometimes considered, for example denotes a weighted Bergman space (often called a Zen space[3]) with respect to a translation-invariant positive regular Borel measure on the closed right complex half-plane , that is

Reproducing kernels

The reproducing kernel of A2 at point is given by[1]

and similarly for we have[5]


In general, if maps a domain conformally onto a domain , then[1]

In weighted case we have[4]
