semi-circular domain, with symmetry plane $\{z_n=a_n\}$

A domain in the space of $n$ complex variables which, for each point $z=(z_1,\dots,z_{n-1},z_n)\equiv('z,z_n)$, contains the circle


Named after F. Hartogs. A Hartogs domain is called complete if for each point $('z,z_n)$ it contains the disc


A Hartogs domain with symmetry plane $\{z_n=0\}$ can conveniently be represented by a Hartogs diagram, viz., by the image of the Hartogs domain under the mapping $('z,z_n)\to('z,|z_n|)$.
