On the Toeplitzness
of Composition Operators

Complex Variables and Elliptic Eqns. 52 (2007), 193--210.
 
Abstract: Composition operators on H2 cannot—except trivially—be Toeplitz, or even ``Toeplitz plus compact.'' However there are natural ways in which they can be ``asymptotically Toeplitz.'' We show here that the study of such phenomena leads to surprising results and interesting open problems.
