Hausdorff moment problem: Reconstruction of probability density functions
The problem of recovering a moment-determinate probability density function (pdf) from its moments is studied. The proposed construction provides a method for recovery of different pdfs via simple transformations of the moment sequences. Uniform and L1-rates of convergence of moment-recovered pdfs are obtained. Finally, some applications and examples are briefly discussed.
