One generalization of the classical moment problem


Let $\ast_P$ be a product on $l_{fin}$ (a space of all finite sequences) associated with a fixed family $(P_n)_{n=0}^{\infty}$ of real polynomials on $\mathbb{R}$. In this article, using methods from the theory of generalized eigenvector expansion, we investigate moment-type properties of $\ast_P$-positive functionals on $l_{fin}.$ If $(P_n)_{n=0}^{\infty}$ is a family of the Newton polynomials $P_n(x)=\prod_{i=0}^{n-1}(x-i)$ then the corresponding product $\star=\ast_P$ is an analog of the so-called Kondratiev-Kuna convolution on a "Fock space". We get an explicit expression for the product $\star$ and establish a connection between $\star$-positive functionals on $l_{fin}$ and a one-dimensional analog of the Bogoliubov generating functionals (the classical Bogoliubov functionals are defined correlation functions for statistical mechanics systems).

Key words: Convolution, positive functional, moment problem, projection spectral theorem, Sheffer polynomials.
