In science:

Realization theory for operator colligations on Pontryagin spaces is used to study interpolation and factorization in generalized Schur classes.
A note on interpolation in the generalized Schur class
Our approach is based on the use of characteristic functions of partially isometric operator colligations, and the interpolation and factorization criteria that we obtain are dictated by what is needed to construct the colligations. A scalar example gives an idea of the nature of the conditions.
A note on interpolation in the generalized Schur class
The proof uses a different colligation from that of Theorem 2.1.
A note on interpolation in the generalized Schur class
Kre˘ın) pertaining to this problem. A key step involves another application of the characteristic function of a partially isometric operator colligation, which was the principal tool in Section 2.
A note on interpolation in the generalized Schur class
The principle difference between Ambrozie’s approach and that of Agler and McCarthy then comes down to whether one views the kernel Γ as an element of a predual (Agler and McCarthy), or as an element of a dual space, along with the introduction of a more general notion of unitary colligation (Ambrozie).
