Weighted Bergman Spaces Induced by Rapidly Increasing Weights

This monograph is devoted to the study of the weighted Bergman space $A^p_\omega$ of the unit disc $\mathbb{D}$ that is induced by a radial continuous weight $\omega$ satisfying $\lim_{r\to 1^-}\frac{\int_r^1\omega(s)\,ds}{\omega(r)(1-r)}=\infty.$ Every such $A^p_\omega$ lies between the Hardy space $H^p$ and every classical weighted Bergman space $A^p_\alpha$. Even if it is well known that $H^p$ is the limit of $A^p_\alpha$, as $\al...
