Abstract: and denote the Hardy spaces on the open unit disc . Let be a function in and . If is an inner function and , then is orthogonal in . W.Rudin asked if the converse is true and C. Sundberg and C. Bishop showed that the converse is not true. Therefore there exists a function such that is not an inner function and is orthogonal in . In this paper, the following is shown: is orthogonal in if and only if there exists a unique probability measure on [0,1] with supp such that for nearly all in where is the Nevanlinna counting function of . If is an inner function, then is a Dirac measure at .
