Matrix Valued Truncated Toeplitz Operators: Basic Properties

  • Rewayat Khan
  • Dan Timotin


Matrix valued truncated Toeplitz operators act on vector-valued model spaces. They represent a generalization of block Toeplitz matrices. A characterization of these operators analogue to the scalar case is obtained, as well as the determination of the symbols that produce the zero operator.
