Abstract:

Suppose that $F:B_k\to B_m$ is an inner map and that $G\in H^\infty(B_m)^n$. We show that the identity

\begin{displaymath}(G\circ F)^\ast=r(G)\circ F^\ast \end{displaymath}

holds with an abstract boundary value $r(G)$. If the natural compatibility condition $\sigma_k^{F^\ast}\ll\sigma_m$ is satisfied, then $r(G)=G^\ast$. Here, $\sigma_k^{F^\ast}$denotes the image of the surface measure on $S_k$ under $F^\ast$. In particular, $G\circ F$ is inner if $F$ and $G$ are inner and $\sigma_k^{F^\ast}\ll\sigma_m$. Furthermore, we characterize the boundedness of composition operators on Hardy spaces in terms of the absolute continuity of $\sigma_k^{F^\ast}$.
