A truncated Toeplitz operator A ϕ : K Θ → K Θ is the compression of a Toeplitz operator T ϕ : H 2 → H 2 to a model space K Θ := H 2 e ΘH 2 . For Θ inner, let T Θ denote the set of all bounded truncated Toeplitz operators on K Θ . Our main result is a necessary and sufficient condition on inner functions Θ 1 and Θ 2 which guarantees that T Θ1 and TΘ 2 are spatially isomorphic (i.e., UT Θ1 = T Θ2 U for some unitary U: K Θ1 → K Θ2 ). We also study operators which are unitarily equivalent to…

A bounded linear operator T on a complex Hilbert space H is called complex symmetric if T = CT*C, where C is a conjugation (an isometric, antilinear involution of H). We prove that T = CJ\T|, where J…

A classical theorem of Frostman says that if B is a Blaschke product (or any inner function), then its Frostman shifts $$B_w = \left( {B - w} \right)\left( {1 - \bar wB} \right)^{ - 1}$$ are Blaschke…
