Abstract. Let φ be an analytic self-map of D. We investigate which Toeplitz operators and multiplication operators commute with a given composition operator Cφ on Apα(D) for 1 < p <∞ and -1<α<∞. Let S be a bounded linear operator in the commutant of Cφ. We show that under a certain condition on S, S is a polynomial in Cφ.
