Products of Toeplitz and Hankel Operators on Fock Spaces


In this paper, we characterize bounded Toeplitz product \(T_fT_{g}\) and Hankel product \(H_f^{*}H_g\) on Fock space \(F_{\alpha }^2\) for two polynomials f and g in z and \({\overline{z}}\). As a consequence, we obtain when Toeplitz operator \(T_f\) or Hankel operator \(H_f\) with the polynomial symbol f in z and \({\overline{z}}\) is bounded.
