Essential norm estimates for Hankel operators on convex domains in $\mathbb{C}^2$

Željko Čučković, Sönmez Şahutoğlu


Let $\Omega \subset \mathbb{C}^2$ be a bounded convex domain with $C^1$-smooth boundary and $\varphi \in C^1(\overline{\Omega})$ such that $\varphi $ is harmonic on the non-trivial disks in the boundary. We estimate the essential norm of the Hankel operator $H_{\varphi }$ in terms of the $\overline{\partial}$ derivatives of $\varphi$ “along” the non-trivial disks in the boundary.
