Together with the companion volume by the same author, Operators, Functions, and Systems: An Easy Reading. Volume 2: Model Operators and Systems, Mathematical Surveys and Monographs, Vol. 93, AMS, 2002, this unique work combines four major topics of modern analysis and its applications: A. Hardy classes of holomorphic functions; B. Spectral theory of Hankel and Toeplitz operators; C. Function models for linear operators and free interpolations; and D. Infinite-dimensional system theory and signal processing. This volume contains Parts A and B. Hardy classes of holomorphic functions is known to be the most powerful tool in complex analysis for a variety of applications, starting with Fourier series, through the Riemann $\zeta$-function, all the way to Wiener's theory of signal processing. Spectral theory of Hankel and Toeplitz operators becomes the supporting pillar for a large part of harmonic and complex analysis and for many of their applications. In this book, moment problems, Nevanlinna-Pick and Caratheodory interpolation, and the best rational approximations are considered to illustrate the power of Hankel and Toeplitz operators. The book is geared toward a wide audience of readers, from graduate students to professional mathematicians, interested in operator theory and functions of a complex variable. The two volumes develop an elementary approach while retaining an expert level that can be applied in advanced analysis and selected applications.
