Reducing subspaces on the annulus. (English) Zbl 1257.47011
Summary: We study reducing subspaces for an analytic multiplication operator \({M_{z^{n}}}\) on the Bergman space \({L_{a}^{2}(A_{r})}\) of the annulus \(A_{r}\), and we prove that \({M_{z^{n}}}\) has exactly \(2^{n }\) reducing subspaces. Furthermore, in contrast to what happens for the disk, the same is true for the Hardy space on the annulus. Finally, we extend the results to certain bilateral weighted shifts, and interpret the results in the context of complex geometry.
