## Abstract

A function/ in H∞ is said to be a weak-star generator (w*-gen.) of the function e_{n}(z) = z^{n}, \z\ < 1, n=, 1 if lim∝ p_{∝} ° f = e_{n} (w*-topology), for some net (p_{∝} of complex polynomials. For the case n = 1, f is called a w*- gen. of H^{∞} The w*-generators of H^{∞} have been defined and characterized by Sarason. It is the purpose of the present paper to give necessary and sufficient conditions for a function to generate e_{n}. As a result, it follows from our characterization that certain analytic Toeplitz operators have the transitive algebra property.
