Abstract: We first use properties of the Fuglede-Kadison determinant on $ L^p(M)$, for a finite von Neumann algebra $ M$, to give several useful variants of the noncommutative Szegö theorem for $ L^p(M)$, including the one usually attributed to Kolmogorov and Krein. As an application, we solve the longstanding open problem concerning the noncommutative generalization, to Arveson's noncommutative $ H^p$ spaces, of the famous `outer factorization' of functions $ f$ with $ \log \vert f\vert$ integrable. Using the Fuglede-Kadison determinant, we also generalize many other classical results concerning outer functions.
