Abstract: A well known theorem of Akhiezer, Adamyan, Arov and Krein gives a criterion (in terms of the signature of a certain Hermitian matrix) for interpolation by a meromorphic function in the unit disc with at most poles subject to an -norm bound on the unit circle. One can view this theorem as an assertion about the Hardy space of analytic functions on the disc and its reproducing kernel. A similar assertion makes sense (though it is not usually true) for an *arbitrary* Hilbert space of functions. One can therefore ask for which spaces the assertion *is* true. We answer this question by showing that it holds precisely for a class of spaces closely related to .
