TITLE: Subnormal Operators and Function Theory
ABSTRACT: This expository talk explores the intimate relationship between the theory of subnormal operators on Hilbert space and analytic functions of a single variable. Particular emphasis is placed on cyclic subnormal operators and some consequences of Thompson's Theorem on the existence and abundance of bounded point evaluations.
