Let be the unit ball in the -dimensional complex space, for , a holomorphic function in , and , a holomorphic map from into itself, the weighted composition operator on the weighted Hardy space is given by , where . This paper discusses the spectrum of when it is compact on a certain class of weighted Hardy spaces and when the composition map has only one fixed point inside the unit ball.
