Abstract: It is known that a function f, holomorphic in the open unit disc U with $ {C^{1 + \varepsilon }}$ boundary data for some $ \varepsilon > 0$, is uniquely determined by its arithmetic means over equally spaced points on $ \partial U$. By using different techniques, we weaken the hypothesis $ {C^{1 + \varepsilon }}(\partial U)$ to functions with $ {L^p}$ derivatives, $ 1 < p \leq \infty $. We also prove that a function is determined by its averages over an arc K if f is holomorphic in a neighborhood of $ \bar U$, and that this result is false for some functions f in $ A \cap {C^\infty }(\bar U)$. On the other hand, we can capture a $ A \cap {C^2}(\bar U)$ function from its means and shifted means on K.
