ABSTRACT We answer affirmatively the problem left open in \cite{DSZ,GSZZ} and prove
that for a finite Blaschke product $\phi$, the minimal reducing subspaces of
the Bergman space multiplier $M_\phi$ are pairwise orthogonal and their number
is equal to the number $q$ of connected components of the Riemann surface of
$\phi^{-1}\circ \phi$. In particular, the double commutant
$\{M_\phi,M_\phi^\ast\}'$ is abelian of dimension $q$. An analytic/arithmetic
description of the minimal reducing subspaces of $M_\phi$ is also provided,
along with a list of all possible cases in degree of $\phi$ equal to eight.

    ABSTRACT: A commuting $n$-tuple $(T_1, \ldots, T_n)$ of bounded linear operators on a Hilbert space $\clh$ associate a Hilbert module $\mathcal{H}$ over $\mathbb{C}[z_1, \ldots, z_n]$ in the following sense: \[\mathbb{C}[z_1, \ldots, z_n] \times \mathcal{H} \rightarrow \mathcal{H}, \quad \quad (p, h) \mapsto p(T_1, \ldots, T_n)h,\]where $p \in \mathbb{C}[z_1, \ldots, z_n]$ and $h \in \mathcal{H}$. A companion survey provides an introduction to the theory of Hilbert modules and some (Hilbert) module point of view to multivariable operator theory. The purpose of this survey is to emphasize algebraic and geometric aspects of Hilbert module approach to operator theory and to survey several applications of the theory of Hilbert modules in multivariable operator theory. The topics which are studied include: generalized canonical models and Cowen-Douglas class, dilations and factorization of reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces, a class of simple submodules and quotient modules of the Hardy modules over polydisc, commutant lifting theorem, similarity and free Hilbert modules, left invertible multipliers, inner resolutions, essentially normal Hilbert modules, localizations of free resolutions and rigidity phenomenon. This article is a companion paper to "An Introduction to Hilbert Module Approach to Multivariable Operator Theory".

    ABSTRACT: Following upon results of Putinar, Sun, Wang, Zheng and the first author, we provide models for the restrictions of the multiplication by a finite Balschke product on the Bergman space in the unit disc to its reducing subspaces. The models involve a generalization of the notion of bundle shift on the Hardy space introduced by Abrahamse and the first author to the Bergman space. We develop generalized bundle shifts on more general domains. While the characterization of the bundle shift is rather explicit, we have not been able to obtain all the earlier results appeared, in particular, the facts that the number of the minimal reducing subspaces equals the number of connected components of the Riemann surface $B(z)=B(w)$ and the algebra of commutant of $T_{B}$ is commutative, are not proved. Moreover, the role of the Riemann surface is not made clear also.
