Abstract: We present a theorem concerning the analytic domination by a semi-bounded selfadjoint operator *H* of another linear operator *A* which requires only the quadratic form type estimates

*H*the Hamiltonian for the spatially cutoff boson field model with real, bounded below, even ordered polynomial self-interaction in one space dimension and , the conjugate momentum to the free field. When the underlying Hilbert space of this model is represented as where

*dq*is a probability measure on

*Q*, the spectrum of the von Neumann algebra generated by bounded functions of certain field operators, then

*maximizes support*in the sense that is nonzero almost everywhere whenever

*f*is not identically zero.
