Let W denote a positive, increasing and continuous function on [1, ∞]. We write to denote the Dirichlettype space of functions f that are holomorphic in the unit disc and for which
Where If W(x) = x for all x, then is the classicial Dirichlet space for which Note also that for every so, by Fatu's theoreum, every function in . ha finite radial(and angular) limits a.e. on the boundary of U. The question of the existence a.e. on ∂U of certain tangential limits for functions in has been considered in [6,11], but we shall be concerned here with the radial variation
i.e., the length of the image of the ray from 0 to eiθ under the mapping w = f(z), and, in particular, with the size of the set of values of θ for which Lf(θ) can be infinite when
