Using Hankel operators and shift-invariant subspaces on Hilbert space, this paper develops the theory of integrable operators associated with soft and hard edges of eigenvalues distributions of random matrices. Such Tracy--Widom operators are realized as controllability operators for linear systems, and are reporducing kernels for weighted Hardy spaces, known as Sonine spaces. Periodic solutions of Hill's equation give a new family of Tracy--Widom type operators. This paper identifies a pair of unitary groups that satisfy the von Neumann--Weyl anti-commutation relations and leave invariant the subspaces of L^2 that are the ranges of projections given by Tracy--Widom operators for the soft edge of the unitary ensemble and hard edge of the Jacobi ensemble.
