Analyticité séparée et prolongement analytique. (Separate analyticity and analytic extension). (French) Zbl 0701.32003
This work deals with the old and always interesting question of separate analyticity.
Definition. A subset E of a polydisc $$\Delta^ n\subset {\mathbb{C}}^ n$$ is said to be separately analytic if for each hyperplane H parallel the axes $$E\cap H$$ is empty or it is analytic in $$\Delta^ n$$, with all irreducible components of dimension $$\geq 1.$$
Definition. A function f: $$U\to X$$ mapping a domain $$U\subset {\mathbb{C}}^ n$$ into a complex reduced analytic space X is said to be separately analytic if for each hyperplane H parallel to axes the restriction of f to $$U\cap H$$ is analytic.
The author generalizes a theorem of Rothstein by getting rid of additional assumptions and obtains the following:
Theorem 1.4. Each separately analytic subset of $$\Delta^ n$$ is analytic in $$\Delta^ n.$$
The question is, as always, more delicate for functions. Here the author gets:
Proposition 1.8. A separately analytic mapping from a domain $$U\subset {\mathbb{C}}^ n$$ to a complex analytic variety, f: $$U\to M$$, such that $$\dim U\geq \dim M+2,$$ is analytic.
The methods of proof, inspired partly by the work of H. Alexander, B. A. Taylor and J. L. Ullman [Invent. Math. 16, 335-341 (1972; Zbl 0238.32007)] and Rothstein [the author and W. Rothstein, Lect. Notes Math. 683, 179-202 (1978; Zbl 0409.32010)] are very much likeable (especially to the reviewer) for being direct, clear and geometrical despite the fact that the proofs are not easy.
