Summary The notions of transfer function and characteristic functions proved to be fundamental in the last fifty years in operator theory and in system theory. Moshe Livsic played a central role in developing these notions, and the book contains a selection of carefully chosen refereed papers dedicated to his memory. Topics include classical operator theory, ergodic theory and stochastic processes, geometry of smooth mappings, mathematical physics, Schur analysis and system theory. The variety of topics attests well to the breadth of Moshe Livsic's mathematical vision and the deep impact of his work. The book will appeal to researchers in mathematics, electrical engineering and physics
Notes Papers presented at a conference dedicated to the memory of Moshe S. Livšic, held at the Departement of Mathematics of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev from July 9 to July 13, 2007
