LMS Research School: Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions

Monday, June 26, 2017 - 9:00am to Friday, June 30, 2017 - 5:00pm

Modern developments in theoretical and applied science depend on knowledge of the properties of various mathematical functions, from elementary trigonometric to the multitude of orthogonal polynomials and special functions. These lectures cover various aspects of orthogonal polynomials and special functions of current interest and undergoing rapid development.

Plenary Lectures
There will be three lecture courses:

Course 1:

Properties of Orthogonal Polynomials

by  Kerstin Jordaan (University of South Africa, South Africa)

Course 2
Discrete Painleve Equations

by Nalini Joshi (University of Sydney, Australia)

Course 3:

Multiple Orthogonal Polynomials

by Walter Van Assche (KU Leuven, Belgium)


These lecture courses will be supplemented by tutorial sessions.

Guest lectures
Adri Olde Daalhuis (University of Edinburgh, UK)
Andrei Martinez-Finkelstein (University of Almería, Spain)
