Topic #1 ------------ OP-SF NET 5.6 ----------- November 15, 1998
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Tom Koornwinder
Subject: Retiring as OP-SF NET co-editor
It is about 5 years ago that the first issue of OP-SF NET came out. The
first volume (December 1993 - December 1994) had nine issues, the next
four volumes had six issues in a year. The first two volumes I have edited
alone. Since 1996 I have been co-editing OP-SF NET together with Martin
Muldoon. Now I feel the time has come for me to stop this editorial
activity. First of all because my present administrative duties do not
leave me enough time for this, but also because after five years new ideas
by a new co-editor will be welcome.
It was very interesting for me during these five years to observe and
document, via OP-SF NET, developments in the field of OP & SF, but also in
many other fields of mathematics and other sciences with which OP & SF
interacts. Furthermore, the social context and the technical possibilities
for OP & SF have changed and developed. Most noteworthy are developments
in computer hardware and software. For instance, the World Wide Web was
still unknown in 1993 (except maybe to a very small group). Now it is a
daily tool for most of us.
The field of OP & SF has great promises for the future, provided it is
not defined in the narrow sense. I have high expectations about the new
team of officers we have elected this fall, and I hope to remain a member
of this Activity Group for many years in order to see how they will
continue and expand our mission.

From: Nico Temme
Subject: Mini-symposium on asymptotics
Adri Olde Daalhuis (Edinburgh) and Nico Temme (Amsterdam) are organizing a
mini-symposium on asymptotics during ICIAM 99 in Edinburgh, 5-9 July 1999.
We have five speakers for a first session. If more people are interested
in participating, we can try to submit a second session. Please respond
soon, and send us your title, abstract, and affiliation.
Title of mini-symposium:
Methods and applications of asymptotic analysis
Asymptotic analysis is an important tool in many branches of mathematics,
physics and other application areas. When solving problems described in
terms of differential equations or integrals, it is often required to
obtain qualitative information on the solution of the problem. Another
area of interest is the study of the behaviour of certain special
functions for large values of one or several (complex) parameters and the
application of uniform asymptotic expansions in computing special
functions for a large domain of the parameters. This mini-symposium
presents several actual problems in which asymptotics plays an important
role.
Speakers:
Roger J. Hosking, James Cook University, Australia.
Title: Asymptotic evaluation of Fourier integral solutions for
the response of a flexible plate to a moving load
David Kaminski, University of Lethbridge, Canada
Title: Hills and valleys at infinity for the steepest descent method
Jose L. Lopez, Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain
Title: Uniform asymptotic expansions of Bernoulli and
Euler polynomials.
Richard B Paris, University of Abertay, Dundee, Scotland
Title: The asymptotic expansion of Gordeyev's integral
Alastair Wood, Dublin City University, Ireland
Title: Asymptotically assisted numerics in MHD stability problems

Topic #7 ------------ OP-SF NET 5.6 ----------- November 15, 1998
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Matti Vuorinen
Subject: Question about Elliot's formula
Generalization of Legendre's identity for complete elliptic integrals
Let E, K be the complete elliptic integrals. Then
K'E +KE'-KK' = pi/2 (*)
This is the special case p=r=-a+ 1/2, q=c+a- 3/2 in Elliott's identity
(see Erdelyi e.a., Higher Transcendental Functions, Vol. 1, p. 85):
F(p+ 1/2, -r- 1/2, 1+p+q; z) F(-p+ 1/2, r+ 1/2; 1+q+r; 1-z)
+ F(p+ 1/2, -r+ 1/2, 1+p+q; z) F(-p- 1/2, r+ 1/2; 1+q+r; 1-z)
- F(p+ 1/2, -r+ 1/2, 1+p+q; z) F(-p+ 1/2, r+ 1/2; 1+q+r; 1-z)
= Gamma(p+q+1) Gamma(q+r+1) / Gamma(p+q+r+ 3/2) / Gamma(q+ 1/2) (**)
Question 1. Is there a counterpart of Legendre's identity (*) for
incomplete elliptic integrals?
Question 2. The Elliott identity (**) provides a generalization of
the identity (*) to hypergeometric functions. The only handbook where
I have seen this identity is Bateman vol. I. Has Elliott's identity
been used or mentioned elsewhere in papers/books?
Question 3. Are there generalizations of the Elliott identity (**) to the
pFq case or to other generalizations of hypergeometric functions?

Subject: Article on Weierstrass by U. Skornik
[The following item appeared in our Activity Group's Newsletter,
October 1998; it was reprinted, with permission, from the
Russian Newsletter "Integral Transforms and Special Functions" ]
Karl Theodor W. Weierstrass - Life and Work
On the 100th anniversary of his death
by U. Skornik
Institute of Mathematics,
Polish Academy of Sciences,
Staromiejska 8/6, 40-013
Katowice, Poland
E-mail: skornik@impan.gov.pl
19 February 1997 marked the hundredth anniversary of the death of the
great German mathematician, the father of classical mathematical analysis
and theory of Abelian and special functions, Karl Theodor Wilhelm
Weierstrass. He was born on 31 October 1815, the first child of Wilhelm
Weierstrass, secretary of the mayor of Ostenfelde and Theodora
Vonderforst.
Nothing in his early life indicated that he would become a famous
mathematician. Karl attended the Catholic Gymnasium in Paderborn from 1829
to 1834 when he entered the University of Bonn in order to follow a course
in public finance, economics and administration. This choice, far from his
own interests, was dictated by his father with the result that, after four
years spent on fencing, drinking and mathematics, Karl returned home
without having taken any examinations. The years in Bonn, however, were
not entirely wasted. It was during the stay there that Weierstrass
attended lectures of the famous geometer Plucker, studied "Mecanique
Celeste" by Laplace, "Fundamenta nova" by Jacobi and extended his
knowledge by an accidentally found transcript of lectures on elliptic
functions by Gudermann. As a last resort Karl was sent in 1839 to the
Theological and Philosophical Academy at Munster where he was to prepare
for a career as a secondary school teacher. He attended lectures on
elliptic functions given by Cristof Gudermann. The theory of these
functions was initiated by Gauss and developed by Abel and Jacobi. In the
early XIXth century Abel considered the elliptic integral of the form
\alpha = int(0 to x) {dx}\over \sqrt{(1-c^2x^2)(1+e^2x^2)}
and the function x=\varphi(\alpha), inverse to the integral. The function
\varphi(\alpha) is called an elliptic function and, when extended to the
whole complex plane, gives a doubly periodic function. Jacobi based his
theory on the integral
u =int( 0 to \varphi {d\varphi}\over \sqrt{1-k^2\sin^2\varphi}},
with a parameter k, 0
