"Behaviour of Universal Taylor Series and

Potential Theory"





(University of Western Ontario)




Abstract:  A holomorphic function on a planar domain G is said to possess a universal Taylor series about a point in G if the partial sums of the Taylor series have the following surprising property: they can approximate arbitrary polyno-mials on arbitrary compact sets K outside G (provided only that K has connected complement). In the last few years, central questions about uni- versal Taylor series have been addressed using tools from potential theory. In this talk we will discuss some of these results and in particular we will focus on the boundary behaviour of such functions.
