Abstract

A new characterization of the positive self-adjoint extensions of symmetric operators, T0, is presented, which is based on the Friedrichs extension of T0, a direct sum decomposition of domain of the adjoint $T_0^*$ and the boundary mapping of $T_0^*$. In applying this result to ordinary differential equations, we characterize all positive self-adjoint extensions of symmetric regular differential operators of order 2n in terms of boundary conditions.
