Nontrivial solutions of linear functional equations: methods and examples
Abstract. For a wide class of linear functional equations the solutions are generalized polynomials. The existence of non-trivial monomial terms of the solution strongly depends on the algebraic properties of some related families of parameters. As a continuation of the previous work [A. Varga, Cs. Vincze, G. Kiss, Algebraic methods for the solution of linear functional equations, Acta Math. Hungar.] we are going to present constructive algebraic methods of the solution in some special cases. Explicit examples will be also given.
Keywords: linear functional equations, spectral analysis, field homomorphisms.
