*Nikolai K. Nikolski*

Together with the companion volume by the same author, Operators,
Functions, and Systems: An Easy Reading. Volume 1: Hardy, Hankel, and
Toeplitz, Mathematical Surveys and Monographs, Vol. 92, AMS, 2002, this
unique work combines four major topics of modern analysis and its
applications:

A. Hardy classes of holomorphic functions,

B. Spectral theory of Hankel and Toeplitz operators,

C. Function models for linear operators and free
interpolations, and

D. Infinite-dimensional system theory and signal
processing.

This volume contains Parts C and D.

Function models for linear operators and free interpolations:
This is a universal topic and, indeed, is the most influential operator
theory technique in the post-spectral-theorem era. In this book, its
capacity is tested by solving generalized Carleson-type interpolation
problems.

Infinite-dimensional system theory and signal processing: This
topic is the touchstone of the three previously developed techniques. The
presence of this applied topic in a pure mathematics environment reflects
important changes in the mathematical landscape of the last 20 years, in
that the role of the main consumer and customer of harmonic, complex, and
operator analysis has more and more passed from differential equations,
scattering theory, and probability to control theory and signal
processing.

This and the companion volume are geared toward a wide audience of
readers, from graduate students to professional mathematicians. They
develop an elementary approach to the subject while retaining an expert
level that can be applied in advanced analysis and selected applications.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in operator theory, functions of a complex variable, systems theory, and control.
