Smooth functions in the range of a Hankel operator. (English) Zbl 0821.30026
Of concern are Hankel operators of the form \(H_{\overline{\theta}}\), where the symbol \(\overline{\theta}\) is the complex conjugate of an inner function \(\theta\). We are interested in conditions on a function \(f \in H^ 2\) under which the image \(H_{\overline{\theta}} f\) becomes smooth, in a sense, on the unit circle. For various smoothness classes \(X\) (such as the Gevrey, Sobolev and Besov spaces), we find sharp quantitative conditions that ensure either the inclusion \(H_{\overline{\theta}} f \in X\) or the totality of inclusions \(H_{\overline {\theta}^ k} f \in X\) for all \(k \in \mathbb{N}\), accompanied with natural norm estimates. Also, the paper contains a number of differential (Bernstein-type) inequalities for pseudocontinuable functions and a result in approximation theory.
