Some notes on orthogonally additive polynomials

24 Mar 2022

We provide two new characterizations of bounded orthogonally additive polynomials from a uniformly complete vector lattice into a convex bornological space using separately two polynomial identities of Kusraeva involving the root mean power and the geometric mean. Furthermore, it is shown that a polynomial on a vector lattice is orthogonally additive whenever it is orthogonally additive on the positive cone. These results improve recent characterizations of bounded orthogonally additive polynomials by G. Buskes and the author.
