I asked the question before, but didn't get any reply, so I took the liberty to ask again.

Let $\zeta\in S^1$(unit circle in the complex plane) and $z\in \mathbb{D}$. Fix $0< \alpha < 1$. Then, is the following true ?

(Question 1) $\int_{t\in S^1} |t-\zeta|^{\alpha}p(z,t) |dt| \leq K|z-\zeta|^{\alpha}$ for some $K>0$ independent of $z\in \mathbb{D}, \zeta \in S^1$.

Actually, by using weak maximum principle on $|z-\zeta|^{\alpha} - H(z,\zeta)$, where $H(z,\zeta)= \int_{t\in S^1} |t-\zeta|^{\alpha}p(z,t) |dt| $ is the complex harmonic extension of $t\to |t-\zeta|^{\alpha}$ at $z$, I am getting $\int_{t\in S^1} |t-\zeta|^{\alpha}p(z,t) |dt| \geq |z-\zeta|^{\alpha}$, which is quite the contrary ! Any help or suggestions ? Thank you !

(Question 2)And also, as a seemingly related question can we say that if $f\in C^{0,\alpha}(S^1)$, then its complex harmonic extension $\int_{t\in S^1} f(t).p(z,t)|dt|$ is $C^{0,\alpha}(\mathbb{D}) ?$ Thanks.


It is true, you have to use Kellog-Warschowski's theorem (wikipidea, will give link soon),for $C^{0,\alpha}$ -maps on $S^1$, and note that $|t-\zeta|^{\alpha}$ is a $C^{0,\alpha}(S^1)$ map, with the Holder constant being independent of $\zeta \in S^1$.
