Rhaly Operators on Small Weighted Hardy Spaces


We study several properties of Rhaly operators on small weighted Hardy spaces of holomorphic functions in the unit disc \(\mathbb {D}\). In particular, we obtain criteria for boundedness, compactness, Hilbert-Schmidt norm, and p-Schatten class membership of such operators. A closedness of Rhaly operator is also studied.
