TopFirstly, we will mention about importance of the reproducing kernel as follows (Saitoh & Sawano, 2016; Saitoh, 1988).

The theory of reproducing kernels began with two papers of 1921 (Szego, 1921) and 1922 (Bergman, 1922) which is related with typical reproducing kernels of Szegö and Bergman, and since then the theory has been improved into a large and deep theory in complex analysis by many mathematicians. But, exactly, reproducing kernels appeared previously during the first decade of the twentieth century by S. Zaremba (1907) in his work on boundary value problems for harmonic and biharmonic functions. But he did not improve any further theory for the reproducing property. Furthermore, in fact, we know many concrete reproducing kernels for spaces of polynomials and trigonometric functions from much older days. On the other hand, the general theory of reproducing kernels was established in a complete form by N. Aronszajn (1950) in 1950. Furthermore, L. Schwartz (1964), who is a Fields medalist and founded distribution theory, improved the general theory remarkably in 1964 with a paper of over 140 pages (see Saitoh & Sawano, 2016; Saitoh, 1988).

When linear mappings in the framework of Hilbert spaces are considered, we will encounter in a natural way the notion of reproducing kernels; then the general theory is not restricted to Bergman and Szegö kernels, but the general theory is as important as the concept of Hilbert spaces. It is a main concept and important mathematics. The general theory of reproducing kernels is depending on elementary theorems on Hilbert spaces. The theory of Hilbert spaces is the minimum core of functional analysis. But, when the general theory is combined with linear mappings on Hilbert spaces, it will have many relations in various fields, and its fruitful applications will spread over to differential equations, integral equations, generalizations of the Pythagorean theorem, inverse problems, sampling theory, nonlinear transforms in connection with linear mappings, various operators among Hilbert spaces, and many other broad fields. Furthermore, when we apply the general theory of reproducing kernels to the Tikhonov regularization, it produces approximate solutions for equations on Hilbert spaces which contain bounded linear operators. Looking from the point of view of computer users at numerical solutions, we will see that they are fundamental and have practical applications (see Saitoh & Sawano, 2016; Saitoh, 1988).

Concrete reproducing kernels such as Bergman and Szegö kernels will produce many wide and broad results in complex analysis. They improved some important theory and lead to profound results in complex analysis containing several complex variables. On the other hand, the formal general theory given by Aronszajn also has favorable connections with various fields such as learning theory, support vector machines, stochastic theory, and operator theory on Hilbert spaces (see Saitoh & Sawano, 2016; Saitoh, 1988).
