Abstract: A Banach space $E$ is known to be Arens regular if every continuous linear mapping from $E$ to $E^{\prime}$ is weakly compact. Let $U$ be an open subset of $E$, and let $H_b(U)$ denote the algebra of analytic functions on $U$ which are bounded on bounded subsets of $U$ lying at a positive distance from the boundary of $U.$ We endow $H_b(U)$ with the usual Fréchet topology. $M_b(U)$ denotes the set of continuous homomorphisms $\phi:H_b(U) \to {\mathbb{C}}$. We study the relation between the Arens regularity of the space $E$ and the structure of $M_b(U)$.
