Indefinite moment problem as an abstract interpolation problem


Indefinite moment problem was considered by M. G. Krein and H. Langer in 1979. In the present paper the general indefinite moment problem is associated with an abstract interpolation problem in generalized Nevanlinna classes. To prove the equivalence of these two problems we investigate the structure of de Branges space $H(m)$ associated with a generalized Nevanlinna function $m$. A general formula for description of the set of solutions of indefinite moment problem is found. It is shown that the Kein-Langer description can be derived from this formula by a special choice of biorthogonal system of polynomials.

Key words: Moment problem, abstract interpolation problem, reproducing kernel space, de Branges space, generalized Nevanlinna function.
