It is well known that a complex-valued function ø, analytic on some open set Ω, extends to any commutative Banach algebra B so that the action of ø on B commutes with the action of the Gelfand transformation. In this paper, it is shown that if B is a homogeneous convolution Banach algebra over any compact group and if 0 ϵ Ω is a fixed point of ø, then a similar result holds, with the Gelfand transformation replaced by the Fourier-Stieltjes transformation. Care is required, in that discussion of this relation usually requires simultaneous consideration of the extension of ø to B and to certain operator algebras.
