Jacek Bochnak, Wojciech Kucharz Annales Polonici Mathematici MSC: 32A10, 32A05. DOI: 10.4064/ap180616-3-9 Published online: 17 September 2018


We prove that a complex-valued function defined on the unit ball in $\mathbb {C}^n$ is holomorphic if and only if it is holomorphic along every complex vector line and satisfies a weak differentiability condition on some real vector planes. We thereby sharpen a classical theorem by Forelli.
