Abstract: This paper proves and generalizes the following characterization of the algebra $ A(K,K)$ of complex analytic functions on open subsets of the complex plane K into K to the case of algebras of functions on a real Euclidean space E into a real Banach algebra B.

Theorem. Let $ F(K,K)$ be the algebra of all continuous functions on open subsets of K into K, and F a subalgebra of $ F(K,K)$ with nonconstant elements such that $ { \cup _{f \in F}}$ range $ f = K,F$ is closed under uniform convergence on compact sets and domain transformations of the form $ z \to {z_0} + z\sigma ,z,{z_0},\sigma \in K$. Then F is $ F(K,K)$ or $ A(K,K)$ or $ \bar A(K,K) = \{ \bar f;f \in A(K,K)\} $.

In the general case conditions on B are studied that insure that either F contains an embedment of $ F(R,R)$ and thus contains quite arbitrary continuous functions or that the elements of F are analytic and F can be expressed as a direct sum of algebras $ {F_1}, \ldots ,{F_n}$ such that for $ i = 1, \ldots ,n$, there exist complexifications $ {M_i}$ of E and $ {N_i}$ of $ {\cup _{f \in {F_i}}}$ range f, such that with respect to $ {M_i}$ and $ {N_i}$ the elements of $ {F_i}$ are complex differentiable.
