Weighted shift operators on \(\ell _ p\) spaces. (English) Zbl 0615.47023

The analytic-spectral structure of the commutant of a weighted shift operator defined on a \(\ell_ p\) space \((1\leq p<\infty)\) is studied. The cases unilateral, bilateral and quasinilpotent are treated. We apply the results to study certain questions related to unicellularity, strictly cyclicity and the existence of hyperinvariant subspaces.
