Abstract: Hilbert and Polya quipped that to prove RH, one can realize the zeros of zeta as spectral parameters for a self-adjoint operator. The Friedrichs extension provides method of transforming a symmetric, unbounded operator into a self-adjoint one. We will discuss applications of the Friedrichs extension to the problem of zeros of L-functions. One such application is an extension of recent work of Bombieri and Garrett.
