The investigation of a generalized moment problem associated with correlation measures


Abstract

The classical power moment problem can be viewed as a theory of spectral representations of a positive functional on some classical commutative algebra with involution. We generalize this approach to the case where the algebra is a special commutative algebra of functions on the space of multiple finite configurations.

If the above-mentioned functional is generated by a measure on the space of usual finite configurations then this measure is a correlation measure for a probability spectral measure on the space of infinite configurations. The latter measure is practically arbitrary, so that we have a connection between this complicated measure and its correlation measure defined on more simple objects that are finite configurations. The paper gives an answer to the following question: when this latter measure is a correlation measure for a complicated measure on infinite configurations? (Such measures are essential objects of statistical mechanics).

Key words: Convolution, positive functional, finite and infinite configurations, generalized joint eigenvector, correlation measure.
