Boundary uniqueness theorems in \({\mathbb{C}}^ n\). (English) Zbl 0588.32007
Let \(\Gamma_ k\), \(k=1,2,...\), be n-dimensional manifolds which converge (near a point \(P\in \Gamma)\) to an n-dimensional totally real manifold \(\Gamma\) \(\subset \partial \Omega\), the boundary of a \(C^{\infty}\)- smooth bounded domain \(\Omega \subset {\mathbb{C}}^ n\). Suppose that the function f, analytic in \(\Omega\), is such that its traces \(f_ k\) on \(\Gamma_ k\) have distributional limit 0 as \(k\to \infty\) (or as \(f_ k\to 0\) pointwise). Then the authors obtain the following Theorem 2.2 and Corollary 2.3. If f is polynomially bounded near P by \((dist(z,\partial \Omega))^{-1}\), then f is identically 0.
Theorem 2.2 generalizes to polynomially bounded functions a result of S. I. Pinĉuk [Math. Notes 15, 116-120 (1974; Zbl 0292.32002)] for continuous functions. If f is known a priori to omit a (finite) value, then the growth condition of f is relaxable to obtain Corollary 2.7 which applies to the Nevanlinna class (holomorphic functions f satisfying \(\sup_{\epsilon >0}\int_{\partial \Omega \epsilon}\log^+| f| d\sigma_{\epsilon}<\infty).\)
The authors’ technique allows for tangential approach (without restrictions) of the manifolds \(\Gamma_ k\) to \(\partial \Omega\) for \(n>1\). This permits in Theorem 3.1, an extension of the result of A. Sadullaev [Math. USSR, Sb. 30(1976), 501-514 (1978; Zbl 0385.32007)] on bounded functions, to include tangential limits.
