Abstract: We present a solution to the real multidimensional rational $ K$-moment problem, where $ K$ is defined by finitely many polynomial inequalities. More precisely, let $ S$ be a finite set of real polynomials in $ \underline{X}=(X_1,\ldots,X_n)$ such that the corresponding basic closed semialgebraic set $ K_S$ is nonempty. Let $ E=D^{-1}\mathbb{R}[\underline{X}]$ be a localization of the real polynomial algebra and let $ T_S^E$ be the preordering on $ E$ generated by $ S$. We show that every linear functional $ L$ on $ E$ such that $ L(T_S^E) \ge 0$ is represented by a positive measure $ \mu$ on a certain subset of $ K_S$, provided $ D$ contains an element that grows fast enough on $ K_S$.
