Abstract: We present some progress in the understanding of when and why polynomials in z and a given continuous function f are uniformly dense in all continuous complex valued functions on the closed unit disk. The first theorem requires that f be an $ {\text{ACL}^2}$-function in a neighborhood of the disk which satisfies $ \operatorname{Re} {f_{\bar z}} \geqslant \vert{f_z}\vert$ almost everywhere and $ {f^{ - 1}}(f(a))$ is countable for each a. The second theorem requires that f have a special form and satisfy $ \vert{f_{\bar z}}\vert > \vert{f_z}\vert$ everywhere except at the origin. The form is that $ f = {\bar z^k}\phi (\vert z{\vert^{2k}})$ where $ \phi $ is a complex valued function of a real variable satisfying $ \phi $ is continuous in [0, 1], $ \phi '$ exists in (0, 1) and where k is a positive integer.
