Abstract: We denote by $ T^{2}$ the torus: $ z = \exp i\theta, w = \exp i\phi$, and we fix a positive irrational number $ \alpha$. $ A_{\alpha}$ denotes the space of continuous functions $ f$ on $ T^{2}$ whose Fourier coefficient sequence is supported by the lattice half-plane $ n + m\alpha \geq 0$. R. Arens and I. Singer introduced and studied the space $ A_{\alpha}$, and it turned out to be an interesting generalization of the disk algebra. Here we construct a differential operator $ X_{\Sigma}$ on a certain 3-manifold $ \Sigma_{0}$ such that $ X_{\Sigma}$ characterizes $ A_{\alpha}$ in a manner analogous to the characterization of the disk algebra by the Cauchy-Riemann equation in the disk.
