The relationship of the Gaussian curvature with the curvature of a Cowen-Douglas operator

  author={Soumitra Ghara and Gadadhar Misra},
It has been recently shown that if K is a sesqui-analytic scalar valued non-negative definite kernel on a domain Ω in C, then the function ( K∂i∂̄j logK )m i,j=1 , is also a non-negative definite kernel on Ω. In this paper, we discuss two consequences of this result. The first one strengthens the curvature inequality for operators in the Cowen-Douglas class B1(Ω) while the second one gives a relationship of the reproducing kernel of a submodule of certain Hilbert modules with the curvature of… 



Infinitely divisible metrics and curvature inequalities for operators in the Cowen–Douglas class

This paper characterize a slightly smaller class of contractions using a stronger form of the curvature inequality, and finds conditions on the metric of the holomorphic Hermitian vector bundle E-T corresponding to the operator T in the Cowen-Douglas class B-1().

Curvature inequalities for operators of the Cowen–Douglas class

Let T be an operator tuple in the Cowen–Douglas class Bn(Ω) for Ω ⊂ Cm. The kernels Ker(T − w)l, for w ∈ Ω, l = 1, 2, ···, define Hermitian vector bundles ETl over Ω. We prove certain negativity of

Curvature Inequalities for Operators in the Cowen-Douglas Class of a Planar Domain

Fix a bounded planar domain Ω. If an operator T, in the Cowen-Douglas class B1(Ω), admits the compact set Ω as a spectral set, then the curvature inequality KT (w) ≤ −4πSΩ(w, w)2, where SΩ is the

Contractive Hilbert modules and their dilations

In this note, we show that a quasi-free Hilbert module R defined over the polydisk algebra with kernel function k(z,w) admits a unique minimal dilation (actually an isometric co-extension) to the

Curvature and the backward shift operators

Let ipa be a Mobius transformation of the unit disk D, \a\ < 1. We characterize all the operators T in £ii(D) which are unitarily equivalent to ipa(T) for all a with \a\ < 1, using curvature

On quotient modules

In this paper we obtain an extension of one of the main results in [5] relating the fundamental class of the zero set defining a quotient Hilbert module M q, the curvatures of the two modules M, M 0

An Introduction to the Theory of Reproducing Kernel Hilbert Spaces

Reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces have developed into an important tool in many areas, especially statistics and machine learning, and they play a valuable role in complex analysis, probability,

Some calculations for Hilbert modules

In a series of papers [3], [4], [5], the first author has studied a new approach to the study of bounded linear operators on Hilbert space based on the notion of Hilbert modules for function

On Quotient Modules—The Case of Arbitrary Multiplicity

Let M be a Hilbert module of holomorphic functions defined on a bounded domain Ω⊆Cm. Let M0 be the submodule of functions vanishing to order k on a hypersurface Z in Ω. In this paper, we describe the
