Let A be the complex Banach algebra of all bounded continuous complex-valued functions on the closed unit ball of a complex Banach space X, analytic on the open unit ball, with sup norm. For a class of spaces X which contains all infinite dimensional complex reflexive spaces we prove the existence of non-compact peak interpolation sets for A. We prove some related interpolation theorems for vector-valued functions and present some applications to the ranges of analytic maps between Banach spaces. We also show that in general peak interpolation sets for A do not exist.
