Abstract

In this paper, a general HELP (Hardy-Everitt-Littlewood-Pólya) inequality is considered which is connected with a symmetric operator in a Hilbert space and abstract boundary mappings. A criterion for the validity of such an inequality in terms of the abstract Titchmarsh-Weyl function is proved and applied to Sturm-Liouville operators, difference operators, a Hamiltonian system and a block operator matrix.
