Deﬁne Sν,π as the class of all meromorphic functions S (z) on the unit disk for which the kernel KS (w , z) has ν negative squares and π positive squares (thus Sν,π is a subclass of Sν ).

If S (z) belongs to Sν,π , similar remarks apply not only to the number of negative squares but also to the number of positive squares.

The numbers of positive squares of KS (w , z), K ˜S (w , z), and DS (w , z) thus coincide, with the numbers of negative squares of K1/S (w , z), K1/ ˜S (w , z), and D1/S (w , z), respectively.
