This book is a systematic presentation of the theory of Hankel operators. It covers the many different areas of Hankel operators and presents a broad range of applications, such as approximation theory, prediction theory, and control theory. The author has gathered the various aspects of Hankel operators and presents their applications to other parts of analysis. This book contains numerous recent results which have never before appeared in book form. The author has created a useful reference tool by pulling this material together and unifying it with a consistent notation, in some cases even simplifying the original proofs of theorems. Hankel Operators and their Applications will be used by graduate students as well as by experts in analysis and operator theory and will become the standard reference on Hankel operators.Vladimir Peller is Professor of Mathematics at Michigan State University. He is a leading researcher in the field of Hankel operators and he has written over 50 papers on operator theory and functional analysis.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"A transformation on the sequence space l2 is called a Hankel operator if its matrix entries depend only on the sum of the indices. . This book gives a systematic account of the tremendous development, the theory underwent in the last half century. . Each chapter ends with Concluding Remarks, providing historical background . . This volume will certainly serve as a standard reference on Hankel operators. It can be warmly recommended to graduate students as well as experts in analysis and operator theory." (L. Kérchy, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 71, 2005)"There have already been several short texts and survey articles written about Hankel operators . . However, this is the first major monograph on the subject, and it covers far more ground. . Indeed, this lengthy book contains a huge amount of interesting material . . this is a very clear and well-written book, which will be a major source of reference for many years to come." (J.R. Partington, Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, Issue 47, 2004)"The present monograph, comprising of almost 800 pages, is an overwhelmingly concise and lucid exposition . . There are several older good books on Hankel operators . but none of them can probably match this excellent monograph in terms of depth of the treatment and of amount of the included material relevant to Hankel operators and their applications. The book has a very good chance of becoming one of the standard references on Hankel operators for the next decades." (Miroslav Englis, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1030, 2004)"The book . is a comprehensive account (704 pages of text, plus two appendices) of Hankel operators and their applications. . The exposition is systematic and carefully written. . This book is an impressive achievement. It is wide in scope . . is an excellent source of information on Hankel operators and their applications. It is a very welcome addition to the mathematical literature, which both experts and nonexperts will surely find extremely useful." (Harry Dym, Mathematical Reviews, 2004e)"The book under review is devoted to the study of Hankel operators and their applications to a variety of problems. . . The book itself is extremely well written. It is encyclopaedic in its coverage, and clear and crisp in its exposition. The two appendices alone are worth the purchase price . . I would say that any mathematically inclined practitioner of linear control theory would definitely benefit from reading this book." (M. Vidyasagar, IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, Vol. 51 (2), February, 2006)"Hankel operators are one of the most important operators that have intrigued the greatest mathematicians and engineers in the last one and a half century. The book is definitely a standard reference work on these operators for the next century to come. . Two appendices on operator theory and function spaces are helpful and informative. The text is accessible to a broad readership. . must for every mathematics library and many researchers and system theorists will like to have a personal copy on their shelf."
