Solution of a multiple Nevanlinna–Pick problem for Schur functions via orthogonal rational functions
An interpolation problem of Nevanlinna–Pick type for complex-valued Schur functions in the open unit disk is considered. We prescribe the values of the function and its derivatives up to a certain order at finitely many points. Primarily, we study the case that there exist many Schur functions fulfilling the required conditions. For this situation, an application of the theory of orthogonal rational functions is used to characterize the set of all solutions of the problem in question. Moreover, we treat briefly the case of exactly one solution and present an explicit description of the unique solution in that case.
