Let 𝔻={z:|z|<1} be the open unit disk in the complex plane . Let A2(𝔻) be the space of analytic functions on 𝔻 square integrable with respect to the measure dA(z)=(1/π)dx dy. Given a𝔻 and f any measurable function on 𝔻, we define the function Caf by Caf(z)=f(ϕa(z)), where ϕaAut(𝔻). The map Ca is a composition operator on L2(𝔻,dA) and A2(𝔻) for all a𝔻. Let (A2(𝔻)) be the space of all bounded linear operators from A2(𝔻) into itself. In this article, we have shown that CaSCa=S for all a𝔻 if and only if 𝔻S˜(ϕa(z))dA(a)=S˜(z), where S(A2(𝔻)) and S˜ is the Berezin symbol of S.
