The present work deals with the existence of the solutions of some Markov moment problems. Necessary conditions, as well as necessary and sufficient conditions, are discussed. One recalls the background containing applications of extension results of linear operators with two constraints to the moment problem and approximation by polynomials on unbounded closed finite-dimensional subsets. Two domain spaces are considered: spaces of absolute integrable functions and spaces of analytic functions. Operator valued moment problems are solved in the latter case. In this paper, there is a section that contains new results, making the connection to some other topics: bang-bang principle, truncated moment problem, weak compactness, and convergence. Finally, a general independent statement with respect to polynomials is discussed.
