Abstract: A representation of functions as integrals of a kernel $ \psi (t;x)$, which was introduced by Studden, with respect to functions of bounded variation in $ [0,\infty )$ is obtained whenever the functions satisfy some conditions involving the differential operators $ (d/dt)\{ f(t)/{w_i}(t)\} ,i = 0,1,2, \ldots $. The results are related to the concepts of generalized completely monotonic functions and generalized absolutely monotonic functions in $ (0,\infty )$. Some approximation operators for the approximation of continuous functions in $ [0,\infty )$ arise naturally and are introduced; some sequence-to-function summability methods are also introduced.
