Abstract: Let $G$ be a locally compact abelian group. A function $\omega:G\to[1,\infty)$ is said to be a weight if it is locally bounded, Borel measurable and submultiplicative. We call a weight $\omega$ on $G$ semi-bounded if there exist a constant $K$ and a subsemigroup $S$ with $S-S=G,$ such that

\begin{displaymath}\omega(s)\leq K\quad \text{and}\quad \lim _{n\to\infty}\frac{\log\omega(-ns)}{\sqrt{n}}=0\end{displaymath}

for all $s\in S.$ Using functional analytic methods, we show that all Beurling algebras $L^1_\omega(G)$ whose defining weight $\omega$ is semi-bounded satisfy Ditkin's condition.
