Let ψ and φ be analytic functions on the unit disk D such that φ(D)⊂D. We characterize the boundedness and compactness of the weighted composition operators f → ψ·(foφ) on BMOA, the space of analytic functions on D that have bounded mean oscillation on ∂D, and its subspace VMOA. We also provide estimates for the norm of a weighted composition operator on BMOA and its essential norm on VMOA. Finally, we use the above results to show that boundedness or compactness of a weighted composition operator on BMOA implies its boundedness or compactness on the Bloch space B, respectively.
Keywords: Weighted composition operator, pointwise multiplier, composition operator, bounded mean oscillation.
