The discrete truncated moment problem considers the question whether
given a discrete subsets $K \subset \mathbb{R}$ and a sequence of real
numbers one can find a measure supported on $K$ whose (power) moments
are exactly these numbers. The truncated
moment is a challenging problem. We derive a minimal set of necessary
and sufficient conditions. This simple problem is surprisingly hard and
not treatable with known techniques. Applications to the truncated
moment problem for point processes, the so-called
relizability or representability problem are given. The relevance of
this problem for statistical mechanics in particular the theory of
classic liquids, is explained. This is a joint work with M. Infusino, J.
Lebowitz and E. Speer.
