Abstract: Let $ \phi ({z^2})$ be an even entire function of temperate exponential type, $ L$ a selfadjoint realization of $ - \Delta + c\,(x)$, where $ \Delta $ is the Laplace-Beltrami operator on a Riemannian manifold, and $ \phi \,(L)$ the operator given by spectral theory. A Paley-Wiener theorem on the support of $ \phi \,(L)$ is proved, and is used to show that $ Lu = \lambda u$ on a suitable domain implies $ \phi \,(L)\,u = \phi \,(\lambda)\,u$, as well as a generalization of Àsgeirsson's theorem. A concrete realization of the operators $ \phi \,(L)$ is given in the case of a compact Lie group or a noncompact symmetric space with complex isometry group.
