This chapter deals with contractive completions of partial operator matrices. Since the norm of a submatrix is always less or equal to the norm of the matrix itself, every partial matrix which admits a contractive completion has to be partially contractive (or a partial contraction), that is, all its fully specified submatrices are contractions. The discussions cover contractive operator-matrix completions; linearly constrained completion problems; the operator-valued Nehari and Carathéodory problems; Nehari's problem in two variables; Nehari and Carathéodory problems for functions on compact groups; the Nevanlinna–Pick problem; the operator Corona problem; joint operator/Hilbert–Schmidt norm control extensions; an L1 extension problem for polynomials; superoptimal completions and approximations of analytic functions; and model matching. Exercises and notes are provided at the end of the chapter.
