In mathematics, Hardy's theorem is a result in complex analysis describing the behavior of holomorphic functions.

Let f be a holomorphic function on the open ball centered at zero and radius R in the complex plane, and assume that f is not a constant function. If one defines

\( I(r) = \frac{1}{2\pi} \int_0^{2\pi}\! \left| f(r e^{i\theta}) \right| \,d\theta )

for 0< r < R, then this function is strictly increasing and logarithmically convex.
