Abstract: We study Toeplitz operators on the Bergman space of the unit polydisk , where is a product of rotation-invariant regular Borel probability measures. We show that if is a bounded Borel function on such that exists for all , then is compact if and only if a.e. with respect to a measure associated with on the boundary . We also discuss the commuting problem: if is a non-constant bounded holomorphic function on , then what conditions does a bounded function need to satisfy so that commutes with ?
