# Hadamard theorem

Hadamard's gap theorem: If the indices of all non-zero coefficients of the power series

satisfy the condition

(*) |

where , then the boundary of the disc of convergence of this series is its natural boundary, i.e. the function has no analytic continuation across the boundary of this disc. Condition (*) is known as Hadamard's condition; the gaps which satisfy the Hadamard condition are called Hadamard gaps. See also Lacunary series; Fabry theorem.

Hadamard's theorem on entire functions: A theorem on the representation of an entire function by means of its zeros; it makes more precise the Weierstrass theorem on infinite products in the case of an entire function of finite order . If, for the sake of simplicity, , then

where is a polynomial of degree not exceeding and

is Weierstrass' canonical product of genus , constructed from the zeros of . In other words, Hadamard's theorem postulates that the genus of an entire function does not exceed its order. This theorem was used by J. Hadamard in proving an asymptotic law for the distribution of prime numbers.

Hadamard's theorem on determinants: Let be the determinant of the matrix with complex entries , . The following inequality is then valid:

(*) |

This inequality becomes an equality if and only if

for each pair of different , or if at least one of the factors on the right-hand side of (*) is zero. The geometrical meaning of this theorem is that the volume of a parallelepipedon in an -dimensional space is never larger than the product of the lengths of its sides issuing from one vertex, and is equal to this product if the sides are mutually perpendicular or if the length of one of the sides is zero.

In the special case when all entries of are real numbers with , one obtains , with equality if and only if all enties are either or and satisfies the condition . Such a matrix is called a Hadamard matrix of order .

Hadamard's three-circle theorem: If is a holomorphic function of a complex variable in the annulus , which is continuous in the closed annulus , and if where , then the following inequality is valid for :

The meaning of this inequality is that is a convex function (of a real variable) of . This theorem of Hadamard is a special case of the two-constants theorem.

Hadamard's theorem can be generalized in various directions; in particular, there are generalizations for other metrics and for harmonic and subharmonic functions.

Hadamard's multiplication theorem (Hadamard's theorem on the multiplication of singularities): If the power series

(1) |

have convergence radii and , respectively, if and are the Mittag-Leffler stars (cf. Star of a function element) for and , respectively, if is the set of singular points of on the boundary of , and if is the set of singular points of on the boundary of , then the power series

(2) |

has radius of convergence , and its Mittag-Leffler star contains the star product , where is the complement of the set and is the set of all products of the numbers , . Moreover, among the corners and readily accessible points of the boundary of the star product, only the points of the product set can be singular points of the function . The original statements of the theorem [1], [2] were somewhat different from the ones given above, and needed precization [2].

The power series (2) is known as the Hadamard product or Hadamard composition of the power series (1). The properties of the Hadamard product revealed by this theorem (and also in subsequent studies [3]) made it possible to use it in problems of analytic continuation of power series, the coefficients of the series (2) yielding some indication of the singularities of the analytic function they represent.

If is an arbitrary compact set inside the star product , there exists a closed rectifiable contour , located inside and including , such that for all the following integral representation of the Hadamard product:

is valid. The representation (3) is also used in problems of analytic continuation.
