Topic #6 --------------- OP-SF NET --------------- February 9, 1995
~~~~~~~~~
From: Tom Koornwinder
Subject: Celebration of Gabor Szego in Hungary
Gabor Szego (in diacritical TeX notation written as G\'abor Szeg\H{o})
was born on January 20, 1895 in Kunhegyes, Hungary, so the enthusiastic
citizens of this small town organized a a little celebration on
January 21, 1995, which was endorsed and co-organized by the Janos Bolyai
Society and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
Paul Nevai attended the celebration and reported on it.
His full account appeared in AT-NET and is obtainable from
WWW: http://math.ohio-state.edu/JAT/DATA/ATNET/szego
Below follows a very short extract I have made from Paul's report.
(I apologize for having left out the diacritical signs.)
During the morning session there were four speeches about Szego's
life by the following speakers:
- Barna Szenassy (read by Erzsbet Daroczy)
- Dick Askey (translated into Hungarian and read by Gyuri Petruska)
- Lee Lorch (idem)
- Paul Nevai
The talks by Askey and Lorch are included in Paul Nevai's full account.
After lunch the participants went to see the Szego exhibit in the basement
of the City Library.
The afternoon session consisted of a few 15 minutes talks about
Szego's influence on Hungarian mathematics. It was organized by Gabor
Halasz. The speakers were Gabor Halasz, Gyuri Petruska, Paul Nevai,
and Peter Vertesi. Topics ranged over inequalities, power series,
Szego's theory, interpolation, etc.
Topic #7 --------------- OP-SF NET --------------- February 9, 1995
~~~~~~~~~
From: Notices Amer. Math. Soc., January 1995
Subject: New Memoir on Spectral Theory and Orthogonal Polynomials
The following AMS Memoir appeared:
A. Jirari,
"Second-order Sturm-Liouville equations and orthogonal polynomials",
Memoirs AMS, Vol. 113, Number 542, 1995.
From the abstract:
The book develops a theory for regular and singular Sturm-Liouville
boundary problems for difference equations, generalizing many of the
known results for differential equations.
Discussing the self-adjointness of these problems as well as their
abstract spectral resolution in the appropriate $L^2$ setting.
the book gives necessary and sufficient conditions for a second-order
difference operator to be self-adjoint and have orthogonal polynomials
as eigenfunctions.
Topic #8 --------------- OP-SF NET --------------- February 9, 1995
~~~~~~~~~
From: OP-SF Net Editor
Subject: Continuation of the three-volume Vilenkin-Klimyk book
As a continuation of the three-volume book
"Representation of Lie Groups and Special Functions"
by N. Ja. Vilenkin and A.U. Klimyk (Kluwer, 1991-93), the two authors
(the first of whom died) have published now a one-volume continuation
which describes some new directions and results within the theme of
their earlier book:
N. Ja. Vilenkin and A.U. Klimyk
"Representation of Lie Groups and Special Functions, Recent Advances"
Kluwer Academic Publishers
Dordrecht, 1995
It consists of six chapters:
Chapter 1: h-Harmonic polynomials, h-Hankel transform, and Coxeter groups
Chapter 2: Symmetric polynomials and symmetric functions
Chapter 3: Hypergeometric functions related to Jack polynomials
Chapter 4: Clebsch-Gordan coefficients and Racah coefficients
of finite dimensional representations
Chapter 5: Clebsch-Gordan coefficients of the group U(n) and related
generalizations of hypergeometric functions
Chapter 6: Gel'fand hypergeometric functions
Topic #9 --------------- OP-SF NET --------------- February 9, 1995
~~~~~~~~~
From: OP-SF Net Editor
Subject: Lecture Notes on Affine Hecke algebras and Macdonald conjectures
The following lecture notes are available as file hecke.tex from
Waleed Al-Salam's anonymous ftp site:
Alexander A. Kirillov. Jr.,
Lectures on the affine Hecke algebras and Macdonald conjectures,
These are the notes from a series of lectures the author gave at
Harvard University in the Fall of 1994. The goal of these lectures is
to give a self-contained exposition of a recent result of I.
Cherednik, who proved I.G. Macdonald's inner product conjectures for
arbitrary root systems, using the algebraic structure he called
"double affine Hecke algebra". In order to make these lectures
understandable to a general mathematical audience, the author gives
all necessary definitions (including that of Macdonald's polynomials,
Hecke algebras, etc.) and motivations in the course. However,
familiarity with (finite-dimensional and affine) root systems and Weyl
groups is assumed.
The author gives much credit to earlier lecture courses on the subject by
Ivan Cherednik, Howard Garland and Ian Macdonald.
Topic #10 -------------- OP-SF NET --------------- February 9, 1995
~~~~~~~~~
From: Yuan Xu
Subject: New book on Orthogonal Polynomials in Several Variables
The following Research Note appeared:
Yuan Xu
"Common Zeros of Polynomials in Several Variables and Higher
Dimensional Quadrature"
Pitman Research Notes in Mathematics Series, 312
Essex, 1994.
Abstract:
This research note presents a systematic study of the common zeros of
sets of polynomials in several variables which are related to higher
dimensional quadrature (often called cubature). Just like the classical
Gaussian quadrature formula, a cubature formula of degree 2n-1 needs at
least N nodes, where N denotes the dimension of the subspace of
polynomials of degree at most n-1. A cubature formula whose number of
nodes is equal to N exists if, and only if, the corresponding orthogonal
polynomials of degree n have N real and distinct common zeros. However,
since such a cubature does not exist in general, one is led to study
cubature formulae with more nodes, the most interesting cases being the
ones with a minimal number of nodes.
In the recent development of orthogonal polynomials in several
variables, the common zeros of orthogonal polynomials are characterized
as the joint eigenvalues of a family of block Jacobi matrices defined
through the coefficient matrices of a three-term relation in
vector-matrix form. The main results in this book show that, in general,
cubature formulae are based on the real and distinct common zeros of a
family of quasi-orthogonal polynomials, and the existence of these common
zeros can be characterized through the solvability of certain nonlinear
matrix equations derived from the modified block Jacobi matrices.
The approach is parallel to that of one variable, which differs
significantly from earlier ones based on the algebraic ideal theory.
The book is in essence a research paper; a good portion of the
theorems are new and, in many cases, new proofs are given for known
results. The content is basically self-contained, including one
section that summarizes the recent results on the general structure of
orthogonal polynomials in several variables.
