Composition Operators between H and α-Bloch Spaces on the Polydisc

Let $U^n$ be the unit polydisc of ${\mathbb C}^n$ and $\vp(z)=(\vp_1(z),\ldots,\vp_n(z))$ a holomorphic self-map of $U^n.$ Let $H(U^n)$ denote the space of all holomorphic functions on $U^n,$ $H^\infty(U^n)$ the space of all bounded holomorphic functions on $U^n,$ and ${\cal B}^a(U^n),$ $a>0,$ the $a$-Bloch space, i.e.,\hspace{-0.3cm} $$ {\cal B}^a(U^n)=\bigg\{ f\in H(U^n)\, |\, \|f\|_{{\cal B}^a}=|f(0)|+\sup\limits_{z\in U^n}\sum\limits^n_{k=1} \left|\frac{\partial f} {\partial z_k}(z)\right|\left(1- |z_k|^2\right)^a<+\infty\bigg\}. \hspace{-0.3cm} $$ We give a necessary and sufficient condition for the composition operator $C_{\vp}$ induced by $\vp$ to be bounded and compact between $H^\infty(U^n)$ and $a$-Bloch space ${\cal B}^a(U^n),$ when $a\geq 1.$

Keywords: Composition operators, alpha-Bloch space, unit polydisc, compactness, boundedness
