Abstract: Let *H* and *K* be bounded positive operators on a Hilbert space, and assume that *H* is nonsingular. Then (i) there is at most one bounded positive operator *T* such that ; (ii) a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of such *T* is that for some , and then ; (iii) this condition is satisfied if *H* is invertible or more generally if for some ; (iv) an exact formula for *T* is given when *H* is invertible.
