Abstract: We show that Jensen measures defined on $ {\mathbb{C}^n}$ or more generally on a complex Banach space $ X$ can be approximated by the image of Lebesgue measure on the torus under $ X$-valued polynomials defined on $ \mathbb{C}$. We give similar characterizations for Jensen measures in terms of analytic martingales and Hardy martingales. The results are applied to approximate plurisubharmonic martingales by Hardy martingales, which enables us to give a characterization of the analytic Radon-Nikodym property of Banach spaces in terms of convergence of plurisubharmonic martingales, thus solving a problem of G. A. Edgar.
