comment Why does $\operatorname{tr}(A^k)=\operatorname{tr}(B^k)$ imply $\operatorname{Spec}(A)=\operatorname{Spec}(B)$?
@Babgen Thanks, that sounds interesting, but I don't follow. The $k$th row of the Vandermonde matrix would be the eigenvalues of the $k$th power. But how does taht relate to the specific eigenvalues themselves?

comment Is a linear functional on $\mathbb{R}^n$ positive if and only if its Riesz vector is positive?
How do you figure that? It doesn't seem like $r_f$ is even an element of $S$.

Thanks for the reference, it's quite illuminating for me.

Thanks Martin, the link was quite helpful. I've used your advice on finding papers a handful of times already since you've posted these comments!
