## Abstract

For 1 < p < 2 and n > 1, let A_{p}(R^{n}) denote the Figa- Talamanca-Herz algebra, consisting of functions of the form (FORMULA PRESENTED) with (FORMULA PRESENTED). We show that if 2n/(n + 1) < p < 2, then the subalgebra of radial functions in A_{p}(R^{n}) is strictly larger than the subspace of functions with expansions subject to the additional condition that /& and gk are radial for all k. This is a partial answer to a question of Eymard and is a consequence of results of Herz and Fefferman. We arrive at the statement above after examining a more abstract situation. Namely, we fix G Î [FIA]B and consider^{B}A_{P}(G) the subalgebra of B-invariant elements of A_{P}(G). In particular, we show that the dual of B A_{P}(G) is equal to the space of bounded, right-translation invariant operators on L_{P}(G) which commute with the action of B.
