Abstract: In this paper we study positive definite functions of Hopf $ {C^ \ast }$-algebras. First of all, we introduce Fourier transformation on Hopf $ {C^\ast}$-algebras and use Fourier transform to characterize positive definite functions. Then we proceed to study smooth positive definite functions on Hopf $ {C^\ast}$-algebras. A complete description of smooth positive definite functions is obtained. Also, a Bochner type result for smooth positive definite functions is proved.
