Functional analysis proofs of Abel’s theorems. (English) Zbl 1099.40003

The sequence of comlex numbers \(a_n\) is Abel convergent to \(a\) if \(\lim_{t\to 1^-}(1-t)\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}a_nt^n=a\). The series \(\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}a_n\) is (A) convergent to \(L\) if the sequence of its partial sums (A) converges to \(L\). The paper presents a proof of the well-known Abel theorem asserting that convergence implies (A) convergence. The proof is based on the theory of Hardy spaces in the unit disc.
