Let X, Y be Banach spaces over the complex field and denote by B B (X, Y) the space of continuous linear operators on X into Y. Recently Tucker  has introduced a weak extension Y+ of the Banach space Y and has proved that B+ B(X, Y+). The weak extension Y+ is by construction a denotes the closure of B + in B** (X, Y) subspace of Y**, consequently if ’’\$ B(X, Y**). topologized in the natural way we obtain B DEFINITION 1. Given a sequence/(t)}(n _> 0) C[O, 1], the sequence IA,I B(X, Y) is called a weak moment sequence with respect to

DEFINITION 2. Given a sequence [(t)} C[0, 1], the sequence B(X, Y) is called a strong moment sequence with respect to if there exists a vector-valued measure z, defined on the -field of Borel sets in [0, 1] into B(X, Y) such that
