Abstract

We study the truncated two-dimensional moment problem (with rectangular data) to find a non-negative measure $\mu(\delta)$, $\delta\in\mathfrak{B}(\mathbb{R}^2)$, such that $\int_{\mathbb{R}^2} x_1^m x_2^n d\mu = s_{m,n}$, $0\leq m\leq M,\quad 0\leq n\leq N$, where $\{ s_{m,n} \}_{0\leq m\leq M,\ 0\leq n\leq N}$ is a prescribed sequence of real numbers; $M,N\in\mathbb{Z}_+$. For the cases $M=N=1$ and $M=1, N=2$ explicit numerical necessary and sufficient conditions for the solvability of the moment problem are given. In the cases $M=N=2$; $M=2, N=3$; $M=3, N=2$; $M=3, N=3$ some explicit numerical sufficient conditions for the solvability are obtained. In all the cases some solutions (not necessarily atomic) of the moment problem can be constructed.
