MATH Seminar: “Herglotz Representation Theorems and Some Applications,” Aurelian Gheondea, SA-141, 4PM December 4 (EN)

Dear Colleagues and Students,

You are cordially invited to the Analysis Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.
Speaker: Aurelian Gheondea (Bilkent University)

“Herglotz Representation Theorems and Some Applications”

Abstract: We first recall two classical theorems of Gustav Herglotz on integral representations of positive harmonic functions and of holomorphic functions with positive real part. As a first application, we present a short proof of Caratheodory’s Theorem for characterization of holomorphic functions with positive real part in terms of the Toeplitz kernel of the Taylor coefficients of the functions. After recalling the Stieltjes Inversion Formula we provide a second application to the spectral theory of linear operators in indefinite inner product spaces.
