Abstract: In this paper, we consider the Ext functor in the category
of Hilbert modules over the disk algebra. We characterize the group
$\operatorname {Ext}_{A(D)}(K,H)$ as a quotient of operators and explicitly calculate
$\operatorname {Ext}_{A(D)}(K,% H^{2})$, where $K$ is a weighted Hardy space. We then use our results to give a simple proof of a result due to Bourgain.
