Hilbert-Schmidtness of weighted composition operators and their differences on Hardy spaces

Abstract. Let \(u\) and \(\varphi\) be two analytic functions on the unit disk \(\mathbb{D}\) such that \(\varphi(\mathbb{D}) \subset \mathbb{D}\). A weighted composition operator \(uC_{\varphi}\) induced by \(u\) and \(\varphi\) is defined on \(H^2\), the Hardy space of \(\mathbb{D}\), by \(uC_{\varphi}f := u \cdot f \circ \varphi\) for every \(f\) in \(H^2\). We obtain sufficient conditions for Hilbert-Schmidtness of \(uC_{\varphi}\) on \(H^2\) in terms of function-theoretic properties of \(u\) and \(\varphi\). Moreover, we characterize Hilbert-Schmidt difference of two weighted composition operators on \(H^2\).

Keywords: weighted composition operators, Hardy spaces, compact operators, Hilbert-Schmidt operators.

Mathematics Subject Classification: 47B33, 30H10.
