Criterion of Polynomial Denseness and General Form of a Linear Continuous Functional on the Space C w 0

  • A. G. Bakan


For an arbitrary function \(w:\mathbb{R} \to \left[ {0,1} \right]\), we determine the general form of a linear continuous functional on the space C w 0 . The criterion for denseness of polynomials in the space \(L_2 \left( {\mathbb{R},d\mu } \right)\) established by Hamburger in 1921 is extended to the spaces C w 0 .
