Abstract: The eigenvalue problem of holomorphic functions on the unit disc for the third boundary condition with general coefficient is studied using Fourier analysis. With a general anti-polynomial coefficient a variable number of additional boundary conditions need to be imposed to determine the eigenvalue uniquely. An additional boundary condition is required to obtain a unique eigenvalue when the coefficient includes an essential singularity rather than a pole. In either case explicit solutions are derived.
