CARMA SEMINAR Speaker: Mourad Ismail Title: A class of 2D orthogonal polynomials Location: Room VG01, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle Time and Date: 1:00 pm, Tue, 22nd Sep 2015 Abstract: We survey the literature on orthogonal polynomials in several variables starting from Hermite's work in the late 19th century to the works of Zernike (1920's) and Ito (1950's). We explore combinatorial and analytic properties of the Ito polynomials and offer a general class in 2 dimensions which as interesting structural properties. Connections with certain PDE's will be mentioned. [Permanent link]
