Let σ(x) be a nondecreasing function, such that σ(-∞) = 0,σ(-∞) = 1 a nd let us denote by B the class of functions which can be represented by a Fourier–Stieltjes integral \(f(t)=\int^\infty_{-\infty}\;e^{itx}d\sigma(x)\). The purpose of this chapter is to give a characterization of the class B and to give a generalization of the classical theorem of Bochner in the framework of quaternion analysis.
