# Sz.-Nagy's dilation theorem

Sz.-Nagy's dilation theorem The Sz.-Nagy dilation theorem (proved by Béla Szőkefalvi-Nagy) states that every contraction T on a Hilbert space H has a unitary dilation U to a Hilbert space K, containing H, with {displaystyle T^{n}=P_{H}U^{n}vert _{H},quad ngeq 0.} Moreover, such a dilation is unique (up to unitary equivalence) when one assumes K is minimal, in the sense that the linear span of ∪nUnH is dense in K. When this minimality condition holds, U is called the minimal unitary dilation of T.

Contents 1 Proof 2 Schaffer form 3 Remarks 4 References Proof For a contraction T (i.e., ( {displaystyle |T|leq 1} ), its defect operator DT is defined to be the (unique) positive square root DT = (I - T*T)½. In the special case that S is an isometry, DS* is a projector and DS=0, hence the following is an Sz. Nagy unitary dilation of S with the required polynomial functional calculus property: {displaystyle U={begin{bmatrix}S&D_{S^{*}}\D_{S}&-S^{*}end{bmatrix}}.} Returning to the general case of a contraction T, every contraction T on a Hilbert space H has an isometric dilation, again with the calculus property, on {displaystyle oplus _{ngeq 0}H} given by {displaystyle S={begin{bmatrix}T&0&0&cdots &\D_{T}&0&0&&\0&I&0&ddots \0&0&I&ddots \vdots &&ddots &ddots end{bmatrix}}.} Substituting the S thus constructed into the previous Sz.-Nagy unitary dilation for an isometry S, one obtains a unitary dilation for a contraction T: {displaystyle T^{n}=P_{H}S^{n}vert _{H}=P_{H}(Q_{H'}Uvert _{H'})^{n}vert _{H}=P_{H}U^{n}vert _{H}.} Schaffer form This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (June 2008) The Schaffer form of a unitary Sz. Nagy dilation can be viewed as a beginning point for the characterization of all unitary dilations, with the required property, for a given contraction.

Remarks A generalisation of this theorem, by Berger, Foias and Lebow, shows that if X is a spectral set for T, and {displaystyle {mathcal {R}}(X)} is a Dirichlet algebra, then T has a minimal normal δX dilation, of the form above. A consequence of this is that any operator with a simply connected spectral set X has a minimal normal δX dilation.

To see that this generalises Sz.-Nagy's theorem, note that contraction operators have the unit disc D as a spectral set, and that normal operators with spectrum in the unit circle δD are unitary.
