Abstract: Let $ M$ be a $ \sigma $-finite von Neumann algebra and $ {\{ {\alpha _t}\} _{t \in T}}$ a periodic flow on $ M$. The algebra of analytic operators in $ M$ is $ \{ a \in M:{\text{sp}_\alpha }(a) \subseteq {{\mathbf{Z}}_ + }\} $ and is denoted $ {H^\infty }(\alpha )$. We prove that every invertible operator $ a \in {H^\infty }(\alpha )$ can be written as $ a = ub$, where $ u$ is unitary in $ M$ and $ b \in {H^\infty }(\alpha ) \cap {H^\infty }{(\alpha )^{ - 1}}$. We also prove inner-outer factorization results for $ a \in {H^\infty }(\alpha )$.

Another result represents $ {H^\infty }(\alpha )$ as the image of a certain nest subalgebra (of a von Neumann algebra that contains $ M$) via a conditional expectation. As corollaries we prove a distance formula and an interpolation result for the case where $ M$ is an injective von Neumann algebra.
