In this chapter we present the classical moment problems as they have been mathematically defined. Moment problems are the simplest way to describe inverse problems mathematically. These problems were originally posed with moments being integrals of monomials. Such moment problems are ill-posed, and present considerable computational difficulty. On the other hand, moment problems whose moments are integrals of orthogonal bases can computationally be dealt with much more easily.
