Abstract: We are concerned with a rather unfamiliar condition in the theory of the orthogonal polynomials on the unit circle. In general, the Szegö function is determined by its modulus, while the condition in question is that it is also determined by its argument, or in terms of the function theory, that the square of the Szegö function is rigid. In prediction theory, this is known as a spectral characterization of complete nondeterminacy for stationary processes, studied by Bloomfield, Jewel and Hayashi (1983) going back to a small but important result in the work of Levinson and McKean (1964). It is also related to the cerebrated result of Adamyan, Arov and Krein (1968) for the Nehari problem, and there is a one-to-one correspondence between the Verblunsky coefficients and the negatively indexed Fourier coefficients of the phase factor of the Szegö function, which we call a Nehari sequence. We present some fundamental results on the correspondence, including extensions of the strong Szegö and Baxter's theorems.
