VERN I. PAULSEN AND DINESH SINGH (Communicated by David R. Larson) Abstract. We prove a uniform algebra analogue of a classical inequality of Bohrs concerning Fourier coecients of bounded holomorphic functions. The classical inequality follows trivially.

Bohrs inequality says that if f (ei ) is a continuous function on the unit circle with analytic Fourier series 0 an ein and f 1, then

is the best possible bound). See [3], [4], [5] and [7] for details. This for 0 r inequality was discovered by Bohr [4] and used in a problem in number theory that had connections with Dirchlet series. As mentioned in [5], several mathematicians such as Wiener [4], Riesz [5], Schur [5], Sidon [8], and others discovered their own proofs of the inequality. However, these proofs were closely tied to the unit disk and to holomorphic functions. Interest in the inequality was recently revived when Dixon [5], used it to settle in the negative the conjecture that if the non-unital von Neumanns inequality held for a Banach algebra, then it was necessarily an operator algebra. Bohrs inequality can also be derived by operator-theoretic arguments; see Paulsen-Popesu-Singh [7], where it is also established, with the help of Bohrs inequality, that every Banach algebra has an equivalent norm that satises the non-unital von Neumann inequality. In [7] we (along with Popescu) also established versions of Bohrs inequality in several other contexts including the situation for various higher-dimensional domains, for the non-commutative disc algbera as well as for the reduced and full group C -algebras of the free group on n generators. We also used a simple method to actually establish the inequality for a large class of holomorphic functions on the open unit disc. This method also sheds light on several multivariable situations as well. See Aizenberg [1], Boas and Khavinson [2], Boas [3], for further connections and references. The purpose of this note is to show that a very general version of Bohrs inequality is valid in the context of uniform algebras from which the classical inequality mentioned above follows as a trivial case. The proof is elementary and straightforward with ideas from [7]. Let X be a compact Hausdorf space and A a uniform

algebra on X. Let be a xed complex homomorphism on A and m a representing measure for . Let H1 (dm) be the closure of A in L1 (dm). Furthermore, let A0 = ker and H be the weak star closure of A0 in L (dm). It is easy to see 0 and well known that if f H1 and H (dm), then X f dm = 0. See Gamelin 0 [6, page 97]. Theorem. Let f be in H1 (dm) such that Re f 1 and X f dm 0. Let {n } 0 be a sequence in H such that n 1 and 0 = 1. Let an = X f n dm. Then 0

Proof. It is obvious that we need to prove the inequality when r = each n, X n dm = 0 (since n H ) we see that 0 an =
