Extensions of Positive Definite Functions on Free Groups

Abstract

An analogue of Krein’s extension theorem is proved for operatorvalued positive definite functions on free groups. The proof gives also the parametrization of all extensions by means of a generalized type of Szegö parameters. One singles out a distinguished completion, called central, which is related to quasi-multiplicative positive definite functions. An… (More)
