Abstract: Let $ A(x)$ be an operator valued function that is analytic on the real axis. Assume that $ A(x)$ is selfadjoint for each real x. It is shown that $ A(x)$ and $ \smallint _0^xA(s)$ ds commute for all real x iff $ A(x)$ and $ A(y)$ commute for all real x and y. This result is then used to establish several new characterizations of the Potapov inner functions of normal operators T such that $ \left\Vert T \right\Vert < 1$. The case where $ \left\Vert T \right\Vert = 1, r(T) < 1$ and $ {A_T}(x)$ and $ {A_T}(y)$ commute for real x and y is discussed. Here $ {A_T}(x) = - i{U'_T}(x){U_T}{(x)^\ast}$ and $ {U_T}(x)$ is the Potapov inner function for T.
