Schoenberg's theorem for the complex Hilbert sphere proved by Christensen and Ressel in 1982 by Choquet theory is extended to the following result: Let L denote a locally compact group and let D¯ denote the closed unit disc in the complex plane. Continuous functions f:D¯×L→C such that f(ξ⋅η,u−1v) is a positive definite kernel on the product of the unit sphere in ℓ2(C) and L are characterized as the functions with a uniformly convergent expansion f(z,u)=∑m,n=0∞φm,n(u)zmz¯n,where φm,n is a double sequence of continuous positive definite functions on L such that ∑φm,n(eL)<∞ (eL is the neutral element of L). It is shown how the coefficient functions φm,n are obtained as limits from expansions for positive definite functions on finite dimensional complex spheres via a Rodrigues formula for disc polynomials. Similar results are obtained for the real Hilbert sphere.
