Abstract: For a positive-definite infinite-dimensional matrixvalued function defined on the unit circle a factorization theorem for in the form , where is a function with Fourier series , is proved. The theorem, as was originally stated by D. Lowdenslager, contained an error. Based on our study concerning the completeness of the space of square-integrable operator-valued functions (not necessarily bounded) with respect to a nonnegative bounded operator-valued measure a correct proof of the factorization problem is provided. This work subsumes several known results concerning the factorization problem.
