Rassias, Themistocles M. (ed.), Complex analysis in several variables. Palm Harbor, FL: Hadronic Press. 65-74 (1999).
Examples of compact sets \(X\subset {\mathbb C}^n\) such that \(\widehat{X}\backslash X\) (\(\widehat{X}\) the polynomially convex hull of \(X\)) has no analytic structure have been given by G. Stolzenberg [J. Math. Mech. 12, 103-111 (1963; Zbl 0113.29101)] and J. Wermer [Ark. Mat. 20, 129-135 (1982; Zbl 0491.32013)].
The paper under review presents compact sets \(X\subset \partial D\) (\(D\) an arbitrary bounded domain in \({\mathbb C}^2\), \(\widehat{\overline{D}}= \overline{D}\)) with \(\widehat{X}\backslash X\) nonpluripolar, i.e. \(\widehat{X}\backslash X\) is thick in the sense of the pluripotential theory, but it contains no analytic disc.
Applications to maximal plurisubharmonic and extremal plurisubharmonic functions are given.
