abstract

  • In this paper, we study the necessary and sufficient conditions for the density of the linear space of matrix polynomials in a linear space of square integrable functions with respect to a matrix of measures supported on a set of radial rays of the complex plane. The connection with a completely indeterminate Hamburger matrix moment problem is stated. Vector valued functions associated in a natural way with a function defined in the union of the radial rays are used. Thus, our first aim is the construction of a linear space of square integrable functions with respect to a matrix of measures supported on a set of radial rays and a positive semi-definite matrix acting on the discrete part of the corresponding inner product. An isometric transformation which allows to reduce the problem of density to the case of the real line is introduced. Finally, some examples of such spaces are shown and its completeness is studied in detail.
