**Title: **The backward
shift on Dirichlet-type spaces

Abstract: The
Dirichlet-type spaces are Hilbert spaces of analytic functions on the
unit disk which encompass many of the standard spaces (e.g., Hardy,
Bergman, Dirichlet). We discuss a few aspects of the backward
shift operator (i.e., shift the sequence of Taylor coefficients
backward one step) on these spaces. This talk will be mostly
expository (i.e., no difficult proofs) and is aimed at introducing
these fascinating spaces to general analysts.
