Topic #2 ----------- OP-SF NET 10.1 ------------ January 15, 2003
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Walter Van Assche
Subject: Summer School in Portugal
There will be a summer school on "Orthogonal Polynomials and Special
Functions" in Portugal from July 14 to July 26, 2003 at the Universidade de
Coimbra. The theme of this summer school is "Approximation and Iteration".
This is the next summer school in a series; The first was the school in
Laredo, Spain, in 2000, the second in Inzell, Germany, 2001, and the third
in Leuven, Belgium, in 2002.
The goal of the Summer School is to give four introductory courses in
advanced research topics on orthogonal polynomials, approximation and
iteration theory. Some free discussions and some informal seminars will
also be available. The expected audience are graduate and recent
postgraduate students as well as young active researchers. The topics to be
considered will be:
Orthogonal Polynomials
Approximation Theory
Iteration theory
Matrix moment problems
Birth and death processes
Integral Transforms
Number Theory
The local organizing committee for this summer school consists of
Am?lcar Branquinho, Departamento de Matem?tica da Universidade de
Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal (ajplb@mat.uc.pt)
Ana Foulqui?, Departamento de Matem?tica da Universidade de Aveiro,
Aveiro, Portugal (foulquie@mat.ua.pt)
The lecturers and their topics are as follows:
C. Berg (Kobenhavns Universitet, Kobenhavn, Denmark):
Matrix moment problems.
J. Bustoz (Arizona State University, USA):
Classical summability theory and q-series.
G. L?pez Lagomasino (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Madrid, Spain):
Constructive theory of approximation.
F. Marcell?n (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain):
Orthogonal polynomials and Sobolev inner products.
F. Peherstorfer (Johannes Kepler Universit?t Linz, Linz, Austria):
Iteration theory and orthogonal polynomials.
W. Van Assche (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium):

From: Lisa Lorentzen
Subject: Conference on Orthogonal Functions and Related Topics
Invitation to a Conference on Orthogonal Functions And Related Topics
Olav Njastad will turn 70 next year, and will retire from his professorship
in Trondheim as of January 1, 2003. In his honor there will be a conference
in Roros, Norway in the week of August 11 - 16. 2003. Roros is an old
historic town not far from Trondheim. It is on UNESCO's World Heritage
list. Please respond to lisa@math.ntnu.no by January 31, 2003 if you want
to receive further information.
Kind regards,
Lisa Lorentzen, Frode Ronning and Haakon Waadeland
Topic #4 ----------- OP-SF NET 10.1 ------------ January 15, 2003
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Paolo Emilio Ricci <"Paoloemilio Ricci"@uniroma1.it>
Subject: Copenhagen Open Problem Session
As you probably know, the Scientific Committee of the 7th International
Symposium on Orthogonal Polynomials, Special Functions and Applications,
(OPSFA) to be held in Copenhagen, during August 2003 (see OP-SF NET 8.6,
Topic #7, OP-SF NET 9.4, Topic #6) has charged me with organizing the
"Open Problem Session" of the meeting.
To this end, I hope you are interested in participating in this session.
If you have a good problem to present, you could prepare a (maximum) 10--15
minutes talk containing a presentation of the scientific background of the
problem and your conjectures about a possible solution.
If you agree with this proposal, please send me at your earliest
convenience (but not later than June 30, 2003), a short confirmation e-mail
message, in order I can have an idea about the number of contributors.

Subject: About the Activity Group
The SIAM Activity Group on Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions
consists of a broad set of mathematicians, both pure and applied. The
Group also includes engineers and scientists, students as well as
experts. We have around 140 members scattered about in more than 20
countries. Whatever your specialty might be, we welcome your
participation in this classical, and yet modern, topic. Our WWW home
page is:
http://math.nist.gov/opsf/
This is a convenient point of entry to all the services provided by the
Group. Our Webmaster is Bonita Saunders (bonita.saunders@nist.gov).
The Activity Group sponsors OP-SF NET, which is transmitted
periodically by SIAM. It is provided as a free public service;
membership in SIAM is not required. The OP-SF Net Editor is Martin
Muldoon (muldoon@yorku.ca).
To receive the OP-SF NET, send your name and email address to

The NET provides fast turnaround compared to the printed Newsletter,
also sponsored by the Activity Group, and edited by Rafael Yanez. It
appears three times a year and is mailed by SIAM. Back issues are
accessible at:
