Abstract: Let $ K$ be a compact locally connected set in the plane and let $ f$ be a function holomorphic in the extended complement of $ K$ with $ f(\infty ) = 0$. We prove that there exists a sequence of measures $ \{ {\mu _n}\} $ on $ K$ satisfying $ {\lim _{n \to \infty }}\vert\vert{\mu _n}\vert{\vert^{1/n}} = 0$ such that $ f(z) = \sum\nolimits_{n = 0}^\infty {\int_K {{{(w - z)}^{ - n - 1}}d{\mu _n}(w)(z \in K)} } $. It follows from the proof that two topologies for the space of functions holomorphic on $ K$ are the same. One of these is the inductive limit topology introduced by Köthe, and the other is defined by a family of seminorms which involve only the values of the functions and their derivatives on $ K$. A key lemma is an open mapping theorem for certain locally convex spaces. The representation theorem and the identity of the two topologies is false when $ K$ is a compact subset of the unit circle which is not locally connected.
