Abstract: Let $ h$ denote a positive harmonic function on the open unit ball $ B$ of Euclidean space $ {{\mathbf{R}}^n}\;(n \geq 2)$. This paper characterizes those subsets $ E$ of $ B$ for which $ {\sup _E}H/h = {\sup _B}H/h$ or $ {\inf _E}H/h = {\inf _B}H/h$ for all harmonic functions $ H$ belonging to a specified class. In this regard we consider the classes of positive harmonic functions, differences of positive harmonic functions, and harmonic functions with a one-sided quasi-boundedness condition. We also consider the closely related question of representing functions on the sphere $ \partial B$ as sums of Poisson kernels corresponding to points in $ E$.
