We also find the smooth solution after solving (24) and corresponding reparametrization of the given hypotrochoid.
where z([zeta]) is the polynomial mapping of the unit disk onto the hypotrochoid interior and [phi]([zeta]) is the analytic in the unit disk function with the boundary condition
We solved this problem for the hypotrochoid interior in the case of P([theta]) = 0.
We construct as an example the element D x [0, 1] where D is the hypotrochoid interior.
