Sum Rules and the Szego Condition for Orthogonal Polynomials on the Real Line
(80K, LaTeX 2e)
ABSTRACT. We study the Case sum rules, especially $C_0$, for general Jacobi matrices. We establish situations where the sum rule is valid. Applications include an extension of Shohat's theorem to cases with an infinite point spectrum and a proof that if $\lim n (a_n -1)=\alpha$ and $\lim nb_n =\beta$ exist and $2\alpha <\abs{\beta}$, then the Szeg\H{o} condition fails.
