Composition operators on weighted Bergman–Orlicz spaces. (English) Zbl 1119.47024

The authors consider composition operators acting on the weighted Bergman–Orlicz space \(A^\Phi_\alpha\) of analytic functions in the unit disk such that \(\int_D \Phi(\log| f(z)| ) d\nu_\alpha(z)<\infty\) where, as usual, \(d\nu_\alpha(z)=(\alpha+1)(1-| z| ^2)^\alpha dA(z)\) and \(\Phi\) is a non-constant, non-decreasing convex function defined on \((-\infty, \infty)\) and \(\lim_{t\to\infty} \Phi(t)/t=\infty\). They prove that \(C_\varphi\) is bounded on \(A^\Phi_\alpha\) if and only if the pull-back measure \(\mu_{\phi,\alpha}= \nu_\alpha\circ \varphi^{-1}\) is an \(\alpha\)-Carleson measure. Also, the compactness is characterized by the pull-back measure being a vanishing \(\alpha\)-Carleson measure.
Since the same results hold true from the work of B.D.MacCluer and J.H.Shapiro [Can.J.Math.38, 878–906 (1986; Zbl 0608.30050)] in the \(A^p_\alpha\) case, their result implies that any self-map defines a bounded operator on \(A^\Phi_\alpha\) and that it is compact if and only if it is compact on \(A^2_\alpha\).
The same results are also obtained in the more general setting of generalized Bergman spaces which have also been considered by S.Stević [Complex Variables, Theory Appl.49, No.2, 109–124 (2004; Zbl 1053.47020)].
