Abstract: Conditions for a functional to be admissible on a locally convex $ \ast $-algebra are defined. Let $ F$ be an admissible positive Hermitian functional on a commutative locally convex $ \ast $-algebra; then it is shown that there exists a representation of $ A$ into a Hilbert space. Sufficient conditions for a functional $ F$ to be representable are also given.
