dc.description.abstract | Let ½ Cm be a bounded domain and K :£!C be a sesqui-analytic function. We show
that if ®,¯ È 0 be such that the functions K® and K¯, defined on £, are non-negative
definite kernels, then theMm(C) valued function

is also a non-negative definite kernel on £. Then a realization of the Hilbert space
(H,K(®,¯)) determined by the kernel K(®,¯) in terms of the tensor product (H,K®)(H,K¯)
is obtained. For two reproducing kernel Hilbert modules (H,K1) and (H,K2), let An, n ¸ 0, be
the submodule of the Hilbert module (H,K1)(H,K2) consisting of functions vanishing to
order n on the diagonal set ¢ :Æ {(z, z) : z 2}. Setting S0 ÆA?

to a natural decomposition of (H,K1)(H,K2) into infinite direct sum

of Aronszajn shows that the module S0 is isomorphic to the push-forward of the module
(H,K1K2) under the map ¶ : !£, where ¶(z) Æ (z, z), z 2 . We prove that if K1 Æ K®
and K2 Æ K¯, then the module S1 is isomorphic to the push-forward of the module (H,K(®,¯))
under the map ¶.
Let Möb denote the group of all biholomorphic automorphisms of the unit disc D. An
operator T in B(H) is said to be weakly homogeneous if ¾(T ) µ ¯D and '(T ) is similar to T
for each ' inMöb. For a sharp non-negative definite kernel K : D£D!Mk(C), we show that
the multiplication operator Mz on (H,K) is weakly homogeneous if and only if for each ' in
Möb, there exists a g' 2Hol(D,GLk(C)) such that the weighted composition operator Mg'C'¡1
is bounded and invertible on (H,K). We also obtain various examples and nonexamples of
weakly homogeneous operators in the class FB2(D). Finally, it is shown that there exists a
Möbius bounded weakly homogeneous operator which is not similar to any homogeneous
operator.
We also show that if K1 and K2 are two positive definite kernels on D£D such that the
multiplication operators Mz on the corresponding reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces are
subnormal, then the multiplication operator Mz on the Hilbert space determined by the sum
K1ÅK2 need not be subnormal. This settles a recent conjecture of Gregory T. Adams, Nathan S.
