Title: Some Positive Definite Functions
Abstract of Talk
Positive definite functions arise in several branches of analysis. In the first part of the talk, I will present basic facts about positive definite functions, and some related classes like completely monotone functions, Bernstein functions, and Pick functions. In the second part I will discuss a special question about the positive definiteness of a particular family, leading to some recent research, and some open questions.
