Abstract: We consider a bounded domain $ \Omega $ in $ {{\mathbf{C}}^n}$ and the Banach algebra $ A(\Omega )$ of all continuous functions on $ \bar \Omega $ which are analytic in $ \Omega $. Fix $ {f_1}, \ldots ,{f_k}$ in $ A(\Omega )$. We say they are a set of generators if $ A(\Omega )$ is the smallest closed subalgebra containing the $ {f_i}$. We restrict attention to the case when $ \Omega $ is strictly pseudoconvex and smoothly bounded and the $ {f_i}$ are smooth on $ \bar \Omega $. In this case, Theorem 1 below gives conditions assuring that a given set $ {f_i}$ is a set of generators.
