The Dirichlet-type spaces are Hilbert spaces of analytic functions on the unit disk which encompass many of the standard spaces (e.g., Hardy, Bergman, Dirichlet). We discuss a few aspects of the backward shift operator (i.e., shift the sequence of Taylor coefficients backward one step) on these spaces. This talk will be mostly expository (i.e., no difficult proofs) and is aimed at introducing these fascinating spaces to general analysts.

To reach CMC from the 210 freeway, if traveling east, exit at Towne Avenue, turn right (south) on Towne, turn left (east) on Foothill Blvd, and turn right (south) onto Dartmouth Avenue. If traveling West on the 210 freeway, exit at Baseline/Padua, turn right (west) onto Baseline, turn left (south) onto Padua at the first light, turn right (west) onto Foothill Blvd at the third light, turn left (south) onto Dartmouth Avenue. For a map of the area, go on Google Maps, and search for the address 850 Columbia Avenue, Claremont, CA 91711. Parking on many streets near the campus is free (for instance, on Dartmouth Avenue, College Avenue, etc.)
