Abstract: We introduce and discuss a class of operators, to be referred to as the class of completely hyperexpansive operators, which is in some sense antithetical to the class of contractive subnormals. The new class is intimately related to the theory of negative definite functions on abelian semigroups. The known interplay between positive and negative definite functions from the theory of harmonic analysis on semigroups can be exploited to reveal some interesting connections between subnormals and completely hyperexpansive operators.
