Reproducing kernel spaces introduced by L. de Branges and J. Rovnyak provide isometric, coisometric and unitary realizations for Schur functions, i.e. for matrix-valued functions analytic and contractive in the open unit disk. In our previous paper  we showed that similar realizations exist in the "nonstationary setting", i.e. when one considers upper triangular contractions (which appear in time-variant system theory as "transfer functions" of dissipative systems) rather than Schur functions and diagonal operators rather than complex numbers. We considered in  realizations centered at the origin. In the present paper we study realizations of a more general kind, centered at an arbitrary diagonal operator. Analogous realizations (centered at a point α of the open unit disk) for Schur functions were introduced and studied in  and .
