Convergence to Zero of Exponential Sums with Positive Integer Coefficients and Approximation by Sums of Shifts of a Single Function on the Line

  • P. A. Borodin
  • S. V. Konyagin


We prove that there is a sequence of trigonometric polynomials with positive integer coefficients, which converges to zero almost everywhere. We also prove that there is a function f: ℝ → ℝ such that the sums of its shifts are dense in all real spaces L p (ℝ) for 2 ≤ p < ∞ and also in the real space C0(R).
