The Schur Algorithm, Reproducing Kernel Spaces and System Theory

Daniel Alpay

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The same positive functions (in the sense of reproducing kernel spaces) appear in a natural way in two different domains, namely the modeling of time-invariant dissipative linear systems and the theory of linear operators. We use the associated reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces to study the relationships between these domains. The inverse scattering problem plays a key role in the exposition. The reproducing kernel approach allows us to tackle in a natural way more general cases, such as nonstationary systems, the case of a non-positive metric and the case of pairs of commuting nonself-adjoint operators.
