Abstract
This paper is concerned with invertibility and one-sided invertibility of Toeplitz operators
over the half plane, whose symbols admit homogenous discontinuities, and with stability
of their pseudo nite sections.
The invertibility of this class of Toeplitz operators is studied using the related algebra
involving certain composition operators. The related stability problem plays here an im-
portant role. The invertibility criterium is given in terms of invertibility of a family of one
dimensional Toeplitz operators. The stability criterium for nite sections for the related
algebra is proved, and then used to get the stability of pseudo nite sections of Toeplitz
operators over the half plane.
The key observation to get one-sided invertibility criterium is building of a special function
which models the discontinuities of the original generating function. The form of this
function reveals the deep connections to the above mentioned related algebra. The one-
sided invertibility criterium is given it terms of constraints on the partial indices of certain
Toeplitz operator valued function.
Key words

41 Introduction
The Wiener-Hopf integral operators and the closely connected Toeplitz operators have
been intensively studied since 1950. These operator classes are of great interest from the-
oretical as well as from an applicative point of view. But we have to note that the multi-
dimensional case has been incomparably less studied than the one dimensional one. The
reasons for that are that in the multidimensional case topological questions are brought
to the forefront and problems appear, which do not play a signi can t role in the one
dimensional case.
In this dissertation we will mostly deal with Toeplitz operators over the half plane.
2Let T denote the unit circle in the complex plane, by T := TT we denote the torus. Let
1 2L (T ) denote the Banach space of equivalence classes of measurable N N matrixNN
2valued functions which are integrable on T . Let Z be the set of integer numbers. De ne

1 2Denote by L (T ) the Banach space of equivalence classes of measurable essentiallyNN
2bounded NN matrix valued functions on T .
2Let Z be the set of non-negative integer numbers. By l (Z Z) we denote the set+ +N
of square summable sequences of complex vectors withN components indexed by the set
1 2 2 2(Z Z). Fora2L (T ) let the operatorT (a) :l (Z Z)!l (Z Z) be given+ + + +NN N N
by the in nite matrix
T (a) =fa g :+ j k j;k2(Z Z)+
1 2It is well-known that T (a) is linear and bounded if and only if a 2 L (T ). The+ NN
operator T (a) is called the Toeplitz operators over the half plane.+
Such multidimensional Toeplitz op with continuous symbols were studied in
1960 by L.S. Goldenstein and I.Z. Gohberg who were the rst to prove the su ciency of
the following theorem (in [18]): P
1 2Theorem 1.1. Let a 2 L (T ) be such that ja j < 1. The operator T (a) isn +n2ZZ
invertible from at least one side if and only if
2a(s;t) = 0 for all (s;t)2 T :
If this condition is satis e d the operator T (a) is invertible, invertible from the left, in-+
vertible from the right if the number
1 i’ 2 = [arga(e ;t )] (t 2 T)0 0 0’=02
is respectively equal to zero, greater or less than zero. Note that the de nition of does0
not depend on t 2 T.0
5
6Later in 1967 L.S. Goldenstein proved the necessity (in [17]).
In articles [17] and [19] L.S. Goldenstein has also studied the stability of pseudo- nite
sections
T (a) =fa g ;n; j k j;k2([0;n]Z)
where [0;n] =f0; 1; 2;:::;ng, and proved the following theorem:
Theorem 1.2. Let a be as in Theorem 1.1. The sequence fT (a)g is stable, i.e. theren; n
exist m such that the operators T (a) are invertible for n>m andn;
1 sup T (a) <1;n;
n>m
if and only if the operator T (a) is invertible.+
As far as we know there are no analogous results for the matrix case even when theP
generating function a belongs to the Wiener algebra (i.e. ka k<1).nn2ZZ
In the discontinuous case generating functions which can be represented as a ten-
sor product of piecewise continuous functions were considered in [2]. Using the bilocal
Fredholm theory as in the quarter plane case in [1] the following theorem has been proved:
Theorem 1.3. Let a2 (PC
PC) . The operator T (a) is invertible if and only ifNN +
for each 2 T, 2 [0; 1] the operator
T((1 )a(; 0) + a (; + 0))
is invertible.
The goal of this paper is to study invertibility and one-sided invertibility of Toeplitz
2operatorT (a) over the half plane acting on the vector valued Hilbert spacel (Z Z)+ +N
with generating functiona admitting homogeneous discontinuities. This type of disconti-
nuities was for the rst time considered by T.Finck in his dissertation [9]. He considered
the following class of generating functions:
1 2De nition 1.4. The function a2 L (T ) belongs to the class if the following condi-
tions are satis e d:
21. the function a is continuous for all (s;t)2 T n (1; 1),
2. there exist a continuous function a^ on T such that
ir cos’ ir sin’ i’lim sup ja(e ;e ) a^(e )j = 0;
r!0
’2[0;2]
3. the function a^ is sectorial, i.e. 02= conv(fa^(t);t2 Tg).
This de nition implies that a function a 2 is almost a constant along the rays
outgoing from the discontinuity point (1; 1) in some neighborhood of it, and the value of
this constant depending on the angle changes continuously. Such type of discontinuity can
be thought of as a possible generalization of piecewise continuity in the one-dimensional
setting.
For this class of functions the following criterium of invertibility was proved:
6Theorem 1.5. Let a2 . The operator T (a) is invertible if and only if for each t2 T+
the operator T(a(;t)) is invertible.
We want also to mention the article by Plamenevsky and Senichkin [25], where they
considered pseudo di eren tial operators of the zero order on smooth manifolds without
2 2boundaries (for exampleL (R )), whose symbols admit homogeneous discontinuities. The
results of Plamenevsky were extended to a more general situation by A.N. Karapetyants,
V.S. Rabinovich and N.L. Vasilevski in [20].
In this paper we are going to consider the class of functions with countably many
discontinuities of homogeneous type, and receive a criterium of invertibility and one-sided
invertibility for operatorsT (a). Furthermore, the stability of pseudo nite sectionT (a)+ n;
will be studied. Note that these operators can be viewed as operators on a "manifold"
with boundary.
It turns out that the question of invertibility of Toeplitz operators T (a) is closely+
connected to a related stability problem in algebras involving certain composition oper-
ators. These algebras were introduced in [8], and were applied for studying the stability
of sequences of Toeplitz operators where the piecewise continuous generating function is
replaced by the continuous approximate identities of it.
For the nite sections for the related problem we will receive the criterium of stability.
This result is directly used for proving the stability of pseudo nite sectionT (a). Anothern;
application of this result is the possibility to study the stability of nite sections of Toeplitz
operators where the original piecewise continuous generating function is replaced by the
continuous approximate identities of it.
We specially want to note that the generating elements of the related algebra play an
essential role in describing the structure of one-sided invertible operators T (a).+
Now we will describe brie y the contents of the following sections.
In the second section some preliminary facts are presented. We state some known
results about the properties of one dimensional Toeplitz operators, and give some useful
facts and de nitions for the partial indices of Toeplitz operators.
The main tools of our study are Banach algebra techniques, stability notion and lo-
calization principle. So, the local principle of Allan-Douglas is shortly described at the
end of the rst section.
In section 3 we consider a related stability problem. The results on the stability in
this algebra have been obtained before, so we make a short survey of them and extend
them by studying the stability of nite sections.
The fourth section is completely devoted to the description of the class of the func-
tions admitting homogenous discontinuities. It turns out that this class possesses many
properties of one dimensional piecewise continuous functions. The rst connections to the
related problem are given.
In the fth section we study the invertibility ofT (a). We prove that the invertibility+
of Toeplitz operator T (a) is equivalent to the invertibility of a certain operator valued+
function, and then study the embedding algebra. The stability results for the related
algebra play here an essential role.
The six section is devoted to a deeper description of the structure of one-sided invert-
ible Toeplitz operator T (a). The special generating functions are built, which play an+
7nanalogous role as functionst do in the one dimensional case. The one-sided invertibility
criterium nishes this section.
In section 7 we consider the pseudo nite sectionsT (a). Applying the results for then;
related problem we get the stability result for them.
The last sections contains the summary of the results, possible directions of their
extension and some open problems.

82 Preliminary Results
2.1 Banach algebras and their ideals
De nition 2.1. A Banach algebraB is a complex Banach space with an additional oper-
ation BB!B, (a;b)7!ab, called multiplication, which satis es the following axioms
for all a, b, c2B and 2 C:
(ab)c =a(bc) (associativity);
(a +b)c =ab +ac; a(b +c) =ab +ac (distributivity);
( a )b =a( b ) =(ab);
kabkkakkbk:
An elemente2B such thatkbk = 1 andeb =be =b for allb2B is called a unit element
or identity.
The unit element is unique if it exists. Algebras which posses the unit element are
called unital. If B is a unital algebra with the unit element e, then the element a2B is
invertible if there is an element b 2 B such that ab = ba = e. The element b is unique
1 1 1 1 1 1and will be denoted by a . Obviously, (a ) =a, (ab) =b a .
The element a2B is called left- or right- invertible if there is an element b2B such
that correspondingly ba =e or ab =e.
The set of all2 C such thate a is not invertible is called the spectrum ofa inB
and is denoted by (a).
A subset of an algebra which is an algebra again with respect to the inherited opera-
tions, is called a subalgebra of the given algebra. A subalgebraJ of an algebraB is called
an ideal if ba 2 J and ab 2 J for all a 2 J and b 2 B. The algebra f0g and B are the
trivial ideals of B.
A non-trivial ideal of an algebra B is called a maximal ideal if it is not properly
contained in any other non-trivial ideal of B.
Given an algebra B and the ideal J of B, one can form the quotient B=J, which
is a set of all cosets of elements of B modulo J. There is a natural linear structure
on B=J which makes this quotient to a linear space. Provided with the multiplication
(a +J)(b +J) :=ab +J, this linear space becomes an algebra again. If e is the identity
of B then e +J is the identity element of B=J.
If B is Banach algebra and J is a closed ideal of B, then the quotient algebra B=J
becomes ah on de ning the norm byka +Jk := inf ka +bk.b2J
The algebraL(X) of all bounded linear operators on some Banach spaceX is a Banach
algebra. This algebra is unital and its unit is the identity operator I.
Let X be a in nite-dimensional Banach space, then the set K(X) of all compact
operators on X is a non-trivial closed ideal ofL(X). The operators of nite rank form a
non-trivial and non-closed ideal.
The quotient algebra L(X)=K(X) is called the Calkin algebra of X. An operator
A 2 L(X) is invertible in L(X) if and only if ImA = X and kerA = f0g, whereas
9the coset A +K(X) is invertible in the Calkin algebra L(X)=K(X) if and only if A is a
Fredholm operator, i.e. the range of A is closed,dim coker A1 and dim kerA1.
De nition 2.2. Let B be a Banach algebra. A mapping B ! B, a 7! a is called an
involution if for all a, b2B and all , 2 C we have
(a ) =a; ( a + b ) = a + b ; (ab) =b a :
A Banach algebra with involution is called a C -algebra if
2ka ak =kak for all a2B:
In C -algebras the involution is an isometry, i.e. ka k =kak.
Example: Let X be a compact Hausdorf space, and let C(X) denote the set of
all continuous complex-valued functions on X. Provided with pointwise operations, the
maximum norm and complex conjugation as involution, C(X) becomes a commutative
unital C -algebra.
An ideal J of a Banach algebra B with involution is called -ideal if b 2 J implies
that b 2J. If J is an -ideal of B then (a +J) :=a +J de nes an involution on the
quotient algebra B=J.
A homomorphism W :B !B between Banach algebras B and B with involution1 2 1 2
is called a-homomorphism if for every a2B we have W(a ) =W(a) .1
We will list now some basic facts for C -algebras. All proofs can be found in the
standard textbooks on C -algebras.
Theorem 2.3. Let B be a C -algebra.
1. Every closed ideal of B is a -ideal.
2. If J is a closed ideal of B, then the Banach algebra B=J is a C -algebra again.
3. If W is a-homomorphism from B into a C -algebra A, then W is continuous and
kWk 1. If W is moreover one-to-one then it is an isometry.
Theorem 2.4. 1. Let A and B be a C -algebras and let W : A ! B be a -
homomorphism. Then W(A) is a C -subalgebra of B and the C -algebras A= kerW
and W(A) = ImW are -isomorphic: A= kerW ImW.=
2. Let A be a C -algebra and J a closed ideal of A, and K a closed ideal of J. Then
K is a closed ideal of A and there is a natural -isomorphy (A=K)=(J=K) A=J.=
3. Let A be a C -algebra, B a C -subalgebra of A, and J a closed ideal of A. Then
the algebraic sum B +J is a C -algebra of A, and there is natural -isomorphy
(B +J)=J B=(B\J).=
Theorem 2.5. 1. For every C -algebra B, there exists a Hilbert space H such that B
is -isomorphic to a C -subalgebra of L(H).
