Abstract: For $ 1 < p < \infty $ we show that $ {L^p}$ functions defined on a $ {C^\infty }$ totally real submanifold of $ {\mathbb{C}^n}$ can be locally decomposed into the sum of boundary values of holomorphic functions in wedges such that the boundary values are in $ {L^p}$.

The general case of a $ {C^\infty }$ totally real submanifold is reduced to the flat case of $ {\mathbb{R}^n}$ in $ {\mathbb{C}^n}$ by an almost analytic change of variables. $ {L^p}$ results in the flat case are then obtained using Fourier multipliers. In transporting these results back to the manifold we lose analyticity, so it is necessary to solve a $ \overline \partial $ problem in an appropriate domain. This gives holomorphy in the wedges but produces a $ {C^\infty }$ error on the edge. This $ {C^\infty }$ function is then holomorphically decomposed using the FBI transform with a careful analysis to check that the functions are $ {C^\infty }$ up to the edge and do not destroy the $ {L^p}$ behavior.
