Composition operators between Nevanlinna classes and Bergman spaces with weights. (English) Zbl 0996.47031

Summary: We investigate composition operators between spaces of analytic functions on the unit disk \(\Delta\) in the complex plane. The spaces we consider are the weighted Nevanlinna class \({\mathcal N}_\alpha\), which consists of all analytic functions \(f\) on \(\Delta\) such that \(\int_\Delta\log^+|f(z)|(1-|z|^2)^\alpha dx dy<\infty\), and the corresponding weighted Bergmann spaces \({\mathcal A}_\alpha^p\), \(1-<\alpha<\infty\), \(0<p<\infty\). Let \(X\) be any of the spaces \({\mathcal A}_\alpha^p\), \({\mathcal N}_\alpha\) and \(Y\) any of the spaces \({\mathcal A}_\beta^q\), \({\mathcal N}_\beta\), \(\beta>-1\), \(0<q<\infty\). We characterize, in function theoretic terms, when the composition operator \(C_\varphi:f\mapsto f\circ\varphi\) induced by an analytic function \(\varphi:\Delta\to\delta\) defines an operator \(X\to Y\) which is continuous, respectively compact, respectively order bounded.
