Properties of singular integral operators \(\varvec{S}_{\varvec{\alpha ,\beta }}\)



For \(\alpha , \beta \in L^{\infty } (S^1),\) the singular integral operator \(S_{\alpha ,\beta }\) on \(L^2 (S^1)\) is defined by \(S_{\alpha ,\beta }f:= \alpha Pf+\beta Qf\), where P denotes the orthogonal projection of \(L^2(S^1)\) onto the Hardy space \(H^2(S^1),\) and Q denotes the orthogonal projection onto \(H^2(S^1)^{\perp }\). In a recent paper, Nakazi and Yamamoto have studied the normality and self-adjointness of \(S_{\alpha ,\beta }\). This work has shown that \(S_{\alpha ,\beta }\) may have analogous properties to that of the Toeplitz operator. In this paper, we study several other properties of \(S_{\alpha ,\beta }\).
