Abstract: For a nest $\mathcal{N}$ with associated nest algebra $\mathcal{A}_{\mathcal{N}}$, we define $\mathcal{S}_{\mathcal{N}}$, the normalizer of $\mathcal{A}_{\mathcal{N}}$. We develop a characterization of elements of $\mathcal{S}_{\mathcal{N}}$ based on certain order homomorphisms of $\mathcal{N}$ into itself. This characterization enables us to prove several structure theorems.
