J, The characters of one-dimensional hypergroups often arise as the eigenfunctions of a Sturm-Liouville equation under certain boundary conditions. 2) 5 oo, where w E c( 1) (O,a) is a positive "weight" function and q E C(O,a) a "potential" function. Up to limiting cases, the differential equation is singular at the origin so that it is natural to pose the conditions u(O) = 1, u'(O) = 0. In view of a close relationship between the convolution * and the data of the Sturm-Liouville problem the corresponding hypergroup is referred to as a Sturm-Liouville hypergroup (cf.

There are many proofs of this result in the classical setting; that in Siebert(l978) is the most elegant and holds also Bloom some and Heyer(l982). straightforward We sketch the relationships details for hypergroups; see below but first consider between weak convergence of a net of bounded measures and the convergence of their Fourier transforms. 1 Theorem (a) f E p< 5 ) (KA) T satisfies If For r satisfying f 1 f a: = ~a Isupp we have " r - lim ~ I s upp - then f = and " . ~ "' (f"' ) C p<â€˘l T (KA) If (b) - ~ v lim f co .
