On harmonic conjugates with exponential mean growth. (English) Zbl 1009.30031
Let $$\varphi$$ be a positive continuous function defined on some interval $$[r_0,1)$$. For a function $$u$$ harmonic in the unit disc $$D$$ let $$M_p(u,r)= ((1/2\pi)\int _{0}^{2\pi } |u(re^{i\theta })|^p d\theta )^{1/p}$$. The space $$h_p(\varphi)$$ consists of all functions $$u$$ harmonic in the unit disc, which satisfy $$M_p(u,r)=O(\varphi (r))$$ as $$r\to 1_{-}$$, and $$h_p(\varphi)$$ is called self-conjugate if the Riesz projection maps $$h_p(\varphi)$$ into itself. The well-known theorem due to Hardy and Littlewood states that $$h_p((1-r)^{-\alpha })$$ is self-conjugate whenever $$p>0$$ and $$\alpha >0$$. A. L. Shields and D. L. Williams [Mich. Math. J. 29, 3-25 (1982; Zbl 0508.31001)] extended this to a finer scale of functions $$\varphi$$ such that $$(1-r)^{\alpha _1}\varphi (r)\to 0$$ as $$r\to 1_{-}$$ and $$(1-r)^{\alpha _2}\varphi (r)\to \infty$$ as $$r\to 1_{-}$$ for some $$\alpha _1<0$$ and $$\alpha _2>0$$. This means e.g. a fine logarithmic tuning of functions $$(1-r)^{-\alpha }$$, $$\alpha >0$$.
The authors now consider functions of type $$(1-r)^{-\alpha } (\log (1/(1-r)))^{\beta }\exp (c/(1-r))$$ and prove that $$h_{p}(\varphi)$$ is self-conjugate if $$\varphi ^{-m}$$ is almost convex on some interval $$[r_0,1)$$. Furthermore, they show that under this assumption on $$\varphi$$ it is $$f\in h_p(\varphi)$$ if and only if $$f'\in h_p(\varphi ')$$.
