Norm equivalence and composition operators between Bloch/Lipschitz spaces of the ball


For, let and denote, respectively, the-Bloch and holomorphic-Lipschitz spaces of the open unit ball in. It is known that and are equal as sets when. We prove that these spaces are additionally norm-equivalent, thus extending known results for and the polydisk. As an application, we generalize work by Madigan on the disk by investigating boundedness of the composition operator from to.
