Introduction and Statement of Results In 1912 M. Fekete and G. Pólya [1] proved the following theorem. THEOREM A 1. Let f.u/ D p C p uC:::C p u be a polynomial of degree n 0 1 n with real coefficients such that f.u/ >0forany u > 0: (1) Then there exists a positive number  such that for any  >  the entire function " " exp.u/f.u/ has nonnegative Taylor coefficients. We are going to give a continual analogue of this theorem. For a function f VT0IC1/ ! R we denote by L.x;f / its Laplace transform: L.x;f / VD exp.xt/f.t/dt . The main result of this paper is the following: THEOREM 1. Let p VT0IC1/ ! R be a function satisfying the following conditions: 1. p 2 CT0IC1/, 2.
