The title of this talk is borrowed from a seminal paper by Arveson discussing non-commutative analogues of the Hardy space H^∞(T) via the so-called subdiagonal algebras. Subdiagonal algebras are a family of non-self-adjoint operator algebras which give a common perspective to the study of some triangular operator algebras (for example, the algebra of block upper triangular matrices in M_n(C)), Dirichlet function algebras, etc. The first part of the talk will be about a non-commutative version of inner-outer factorization in finite maximal subdiagonal algebras. We will then discuss a proof of a version of Jensen's inequality in this setting which relates to some classical results by Szegö.
