Module aim (aims)

The aim of the course to present the modern theory of concrete operators on spaces of holomorphic functions. We intend to provide both some introduction to the theory of such spaces of holomorphic functions as the Hardy and the Bergman space and to the theory of operators acting on these spaces. In particular, Toeplitz and Hankel operators will be discussed. We shall start by presenting the classical theory of operators on the Hardy space, which will motive further study of the Bergman space case.
Operator theory on spaces of holomorphic functions is a beautiful, active area of research, which combines methods of complex analysis, functional analysis and (abstract) operator theory.

Pre-requisites in terms of knowledge, skills and social competences (where relevant)

Although we shall discuss many rather up-to-date results in operator theory, the aim of the course is to be as self-contained as possible. Basic information in complex analysis, functional analysis and operator theory will be presented in the course. However some background in analytic functions will be helpful. A student may for example study Analytic Functions course at the same time.
