von Neumann's inequality for row contractive matrix tuples

  title={von Neumann's inequality for row contractive matrix tuples},
  author={Michael Hartz and Stefan Richter and Orr Shalit},
We prove that for all n ∈ N, there exists a constant Cn such that for all d ∈ N, for every row contraction T consisting of d commuting n× n matrices and every polynomial p, the following inequality holds: ‖p(T )‖ ≤ Cn sup z∈Bd |p(z)|. We apply this result and the considerations involved in the proof to several open problems from the pertinent literature. First, we show that Gleason’s problem cannot be solved contractively in H∞(Bd) for d ≥ 2. Second, we prove that the multiplier algebra Mult(Da… 


Subalgebras ofC*-algebras III: Multivariable operator theory
A d-contraction is a d-tuple (T1, . . . , Td) of mutually commuting operators acting on a common Hilbert space H such that ‖T1ξ1 + T2ξ2 + · · · + Tdξd‖ ≤ ‖ξ1‖ + ‖ξ2‖ + · · · + ‖ξd‖ for all ξ1, ξ2, .
Every complete Pick space satisfies the column-row property
In the theory of complete Pick spaces, the column-row property has appeared in a variety of contexts. We show that it is satisfied by every complete Pick space in the following strong form: each
Multiplier tests and subhomogeneity of multiplier algebras
Multipliers of reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces can be characterized in terms of positivity of $n \times n$ matrices analogous to the classical Pick matrix. We study for which reproducing kernel
On the Isomorphism Problem for Multiplier Algebras of Nevanlinna-Pick Spaces
Abstract We continue the investigation of the isomorphism problem for multiplier algebras of reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces with the complete Nevanlinna-Pick property. In contrast to previous work
Multiplier algebras of complete Nevanlinna–Pick spaces: Dilations, boundary representations and hyperrigidity
Abstract We study reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces on the unit ball with the complete Nevanlinna–Pick property through the representation theory of their algebras of multipliers. We give a complete
Standard models for some commuting multioperators
An analogue to the Sz.-Nagy-Foia5 dilation theory is presented for several commuting operators on a Hilbert space. The dilation theory of Hilbert space contractions, a reference of which is the
A generalization of von Neumann’s inequality to the complex ball
A necessary and sufficient condition is found for a polynomial Q of J variables to be such that Q (A 1, . . ., AJ) is a contraction whenever Aj (1 < j < J) are commuting linear operators on complex
Operator theory and function theory in Drury-Arveson space and its quotients
The Drury-Arveson space H d (also known as symmetric Fock space or the d-shift space), is the reproducing kernel Hilbert space on the unit ball of C with the kernel k(z, w) = (1 − 〈z, w〉)−1. The
Algebras of noncommutative functions on subvarieties of the noncommutative ball: The bounded and completely bounded isomorphism problem
Given a noncommutative (nc) variety $\mathfrak{V}$ in the nc unit ball $\mathfrak{B}_d$, we consider the algebra $H^\infty(\mathfrak{V})$ of bounded nc holomorphic functions on $\mathfrak{V}$. We
Multipliers and essential norm on the Drury-Arveson space
It is well known that for multipliers f of the Drury-Arveson space H 2 n , ∥f∥ ∞ does not dominate the operator norm of M f . We show that in general ∥f∥ ∞ does not even dominate the essential norm
