Abstract. We discuss the proof of and systematic application of Case's sum rules for Jacobi matrices. Of special interest is a linear combination of two of his sum rules which has strictly positive terms. Among our results are a complete classification of the spectral measures of all Jacobi matrices $J$ for which $J-J_0$ is Hilbert--Schmidt, and a proof of Nevai's conjecture that the Szeg\H{o} condition holds if $J-J_0$ is trace class.
