We continue this procedure until all purely imaginary eigenvalues of Hare exhausted. b) Let>.. I2n )m-lal f:. O. (H) is J-neutral and R>. (H)+R_>..

Clearly, L 2 ,n(lR) = L 2,n(-00,T] EB L 2,n[T,(0) for every T E IR. We introduce the family of orthogonal projections P;' from L 2,n(lR) onto L 2,n[T, (0) by t< t 2: T, T, together with the family of complementary orthogonal projections Q~ from L 2 ,n onto L 2 ,n( -00, T], given by Q~ := I - P;'. Here I is the identity on L 2 ,n. 9. 1. An operator Q : L 2,m(lR) QP;' 2. An operator F: L 2,m(lR) ----+ ----+ L 2,n(lR) is said to be causal if = P;'QP;' , "IT E IR. L 2,n(lR) is said to be anti-causal if FQr; = Q~FQr;, "IT IR.
