#### Description

The band method plays a fundamental role in solving a Toeplitz and Nehari interpolation problem; see \cite{ggk2}. The solution to the Nehari problem involves the inverses of $I - HH^*$ and $I- H^*H$ where $H$ is the corresponding Hankel matrix. Here we will derive a similar result for a certain commutant lifing problem. Let $\Theta$ be an inner function in $H^{\infty}(\mathcal{E},\mathcal{Y})$ and $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$ the subspace of $\ell_+^2(\mathcal{Y})$ defined by \[ \mathcal{H}(\Theta) = \ell_+^2(\mathcal{Y}) \ominus T_\Theta \ell_+^2(\mathcal{E}) \] where $T_\Theta$ is the Toeplitz operator determined by $\Theta$. Clearly, $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$ is an invariant subspace for the backward shift $S_\mathcal{Y}^*$. Consider the \emph{data set} $\{A,T^\prime,S_\mathcal{Y} \}$ where $A$ is a strict contraction mapping $\ell_+^2(\mathcal{U)}$ into $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$, the operator $T^\prime$ on $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$ is the compression of $S_\mathcal{Y}$ to $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$, that is, \[ T^\prime = \Pi_{\scriptscriptstyle \mathcal{H}(\Theta)} S_\mathcal{Y}| \mathcal{H}(\Theta) \mbox{ on } \mathcal{H}(\Theta). \] Here $\Pi_{\scriptscriptstyle \mathcal{H}(\Theta)}$ is the orthogonal projection from $\ell_+^2(\mathcal{Y})$ onto $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$.

A band formula for a Toeplitz commutant lifting problem

The band method plays a fundamental role in solving a Toeplitz and Nehari interpolation problem; see \cite{ggk2}. The solution to the Nehari problem involves the inverses of $I - HH^*$ and $I- H^*H$ where $H$ is the corresponding Hankel matrix. Here we will derive a similar result for a certain commutant lifing problem. Let $\Theta$ be an inner function in $H^{\infty}(\mathcal{E},\mathcal{Y})$ and $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$ the subspace of $\ell_+^2(\mathcal{Y})$ defined by \[ \mathcal{H}(\Theta) = \ell_+^2(\mathcal{Y}) \ominus T_\Theta \ell_+^2(\mathcal{E}) \] where $T_\Theta$ is the Toeplitz operator determined by $\Theta$. Clearly, $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$ is an invariant subspace for the backward shift $S_\mathcal{Y}^*$. Consider the \emph{data set} $\{A,T^\prime,S_\mathcal{Y} \}$ where $A$ is a strict contraction mapping $\ell_+^2(\mathcal{U)}$ into $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$, the operator $T^\prime$ on $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$ is the compression of $S_\mathcal{Y}$ to $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$, that is, \[ T^\prime = \Pi_{\scriptscriptstyle \mathcal{H}(\Theta)} S_\mathcal{Y}| \mathcal{H}(\Theta) \mbox{ on } \mathcal{H}(\Theta). \] Here $\Pi_{\scriptscriptstyle \mathcal{H}(\Theta)}$ is the orthogonal projection from $\ell_+^2(\mathcal{Y})$ onto $\mathcal{H}(\Theta)$. Moreover, $A$ intertwines $S_\mathcal{U}$ with $T^\prime$, that is, $T^\prime A =AS_\mathcal{U}$. Given this data set the commutant lifting problem is to find all contractive Toeplitz operators $T_\Psi$ such that \begin{equation}\label{rclt} \Pi_{\scriptscriptstyle \mathcal{H}(\Theta)}T_\Psi =A. \end{equation} This lifting problem includes the Nevanlinna-Pick and Leech interpolation problems.
