Partial sums of orthonormal bases preserving positivity—And martingales
We characterize, for finite measure spaces, those orthonormal bases with the following positivity property: if f is a non-negative function, then the partial sums in the expansion of f are non-negative. The bases are necessarily generalized Haar functions and the partial sums are a martingale closed on the right by f.
