Abstract: We show that all the zeros of the Fourier transforms of the functions , , are real and simple. Then, using this result, we show that there are infinitely many polynomials such that for each the translates of the function

generate . Finally, we discuss the problem of finding the minimum number of monomials , , which have the property that the translates of the functions , , generate , for a given .
