Topic #1 ------------ OP-SF NET 10.4 ------------- July 15, 2003
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Tom Koornwinder
Subject: Edinburgh Workshop on Jack, Hall-Littlewood and Macdonald
polynomials
A workshop on Jack, Hall-Littlewood and Macdonald polynomials,
will be held at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences,
Edinburgh, Scotland, 23-26 September 2003.
See http://www.ma.hw.ac.uk/icms/meetings/2003/polynomials/
for further information. The information below is extracted for this web
site.
The meeting will run for four full days, starting first thing on
Tuesday 23 September and finishing at the end of Friday 26 September.
The following are expected to give keynote talks at the Workshop:
O. Chalykh (Cornell)
J.-F. van Diejen (Talca, Chile)
P.I. Etingof (MIT)
R.A. Gustafson (Texas A&M)
F. Knop (Rutgers)
T.H. Koornwinder (Amsterdam)
A. Lascoux (Marne la Vallé)
I.G. Macdonald (UK)
T. Miwa (Kyoto)
E. Opdam (Amsterdam)
E. M. Rains (Center for Communications Research, Princeton)
S. Sahi (Rutgers)
A.N. Sergeev (Balakovo)
E.K. Sklyanin (York)
V. Spiridonov (Dubna)
The meeting is by invitation only (numbers are strictly limited). If
you are interested in participating in this meeting, please contact
Vadim Kuznetsov (v.b.kuznetsov@leeds.ac.uk), Alun Morris
(alun@morus25.fsnet.co.uk) or Tracey Dart (tracey@maths.ed.ac.uk) or
one of the organisers.
Scientific Organising Committee:
V. B. Kuznetsov (Leeds),
A. O. Morris (Aberystwyth),
A. Okounkov (Princeton),
B. D. Sleeman (Leeds),
J.-Y. Thibon (Marne-la-Vallee),
A. P. Veselov (Loughborough).
The year 2003 marks important anniversaries involving all of those
involved in the discovery of the polynomials mentioned in the title of
the workshop. It is the year that celebrates the centenary of the
birth of D.E. Littlewood; the year that commemorates the death of
Henry Jack 25 years ago; and, most importantly, it is the year when
I.G. Macdonald is 75. Ian Macdonald has been responsible for the most
remarkable developments in the subject; indeed he has extended and
generalized the work in this area to a level that earlier would be
regarded as inconceivable.
The workshop will concentrate on the latest developments and will
involve the leading exponents of the subject on an international
level, including many of those who have been responsible for the new
directions the subject has taken in the last twenty years or so. The
meeting will compare the diverse approaches to establishing the
properties of these important special functions and will focus on
creating further collaboration between the different groups and boost
new applications.
The meeting is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences
Research Council, the London Mathematical Society and the Edinburgh
Mathematical Society.
Topic #2 ------------ OP-SF NET 10.4 ------------- July 15, 2003

Topic #3 ------------ OP-SF NET 10.4 ------------- July 15, 2003
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Walter Van Assche
Subject: Death of Jairo A. Charris
Paco Marcellan has informed me that he received some bad news from the
Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogota. On Friday July 18 professor
Jairo A. Charris died. He was professor titular (full professor) at the
Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogota. Jairo Charris was born on
November 21, 1939. He obtained his BS at the Universidad Nacional in
1962 (chemical engineering) and 1967 (mathematics). Then he obtained his
master of science degree at the University of Chicago (1969) and his
Ph.D. at Arizona State University (1984). He is known in our OPSF
community for his set of papers on sieved orthogonal polynomials (with
Mourad Ismail).
Topic #4 ------------ OP-SF NET 10.4 ------------- July 15, 2003
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Tom Koornwinder
Subject: Death of Jan Koekoek
I heard from Roelof Koekoek that his uncle Jan Koekoek passed away
on July 17, 2003.
In our community Jan Koekoek will be known by his joint publications
with Roelof Koekoek on differential equations satisfied by generalized
classical orthogonal polynomials (Laguerre, ultraspherical, Jacobi).
Generically these equations turn out to be of infinite order, while
they specialize to finite even order for special cases of the
parameters.
MathSciNet lists reviews of 9 papers by Jan Koekoek, of which 5
are joint with Roelof Koekoek, one is joint with Herman Bavinck, and
one is by the three authors Jan and Roelof Koekoek and Herman Bavinck.
Topic #5 ------------ OP-SF NET 10.4 ------------- July 15, 2003
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Tom Koornwinder
Subject: Looking for large scale computer algebra problems in OP and SF
Dear Colleagues in Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions,
I am getting involved in a major revision of Jos Vermaseren's
symbolic manipulation program FORM, see
* http://www.nikhef.nl/~form/ (sources and manuals)
* http://arxiv.org/abs/math-ph/0010025
(J.A.M. Vermaseren, New features of FORM)
* http://www.lorentz.leidenuniv.nl/form/form.html
(An Introduction to FORM by Geert Jan van Oldenborgh)
In some parts of physics, in particular high energy physics, FORM has
become an important tool because of its fast handling of very large
expressions. There is also a very limited number of applications of
the program in mathematics, in work where the more common programs
were too slow.
Jos Vermaseren is currently preparing a proposal to FOM (the physics
branch of the Dutch National Science Foundation) to make FORM into an
open source project, allowing eventually scientists from many fields
to make additions. Involvement of scientists outside physics (like
mathematicians and computer scientists) will be an important aspect of
the proposal. It is the intention that new usage of FORM for research
problems outside high energy physics will be developed simultaneously
and in interaction with the rewriting of the program code.
In connection with these plans I am looking for problems in special
functions, Lie theory and combinatorics, where progress in research
heavily depends on experimenting with computer algebra, but where
the scale (in computing time, memory or file size) is beyond the
possibilities of Maple and Mathematica. I am also looking for
algorithms, already implemented in Maple or Mathematica, for which
the current implementations cannot handle all desirable input.
Please contact me if you have problems of this type which you cannot
(or do not want to) solve yourself by writing dedicated code or
calling some existing special purpose program. Then I will provide you
with some further information about the project. If the problem seems
suitable for the project, then we can discuss whether you just want to
suggest the problem, or that you want to get further involved in the
project.

Subject: Walter Gautschi's Matlab programs
Walter Gautschi is maintaining on the web: "OPQ: a Matlab suite of
programs for generating orthogonal polynomials and related quadrature
rules", see

This set of Matlab codes is a companion piece to the book "Orthogonal
Polynomials: Computation and Approximation", Clarendon Press, Oxford,
2003, to appear. The routines implement all computational procedures
discussed therein and provide code for the examples, tables, and
figures.

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:

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).
