remarkable contributions in the pursuit of the role of symmetry and
combinatorics in physical theory. We welcome contributions in the fields
of classical combinatorics, special functions, representation theory and
symmetric functions, discrete dynamical systems, statistical mechanics,
computational biology, quantum angular momentum theory and unitary
symmetries.

Location of Tianjin:
Tianjin is the third largest city in China. It is close to Beijing. It
takes about 2 hours to drive to Beijing from Tianjin on a modern
tollway. There are also convenient fast train and bus services. The
transportation (including airport pickups) will all be taken care of by
the local organizers (and will be arranged in advance). For most cases,
you should fly into Beijing, and we will arrange the transportation from
the Beijing airport to Tianjin. In any case, don't panic, and you don't
need to speak Chinese.

in harmonic analysis, approximation theory, and applications.
The scientific program will consist of plenary lectures and
contributed talks. Our invited speakers are
Richard Askey (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Christian Berg (University of Copenhagen)
Charles Dunkl (University of Virginia)

Topic #5 ------------ OP-SF NET 11.2 ------------- March 15, 2004
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Eleutherius Symeonidis
Subject: Two identities for the hypergeometric function
In my research work on the Poisson integral for a ball in non-euclidean spaces I
have obtained (as consequences) two identities for the hypergeometric function. I
would like to know whether these identities are already known and, if not,
whether there could be a way to prove them directly by other techniques. As a
matter of fact, the first identity was communicated last October by Professor
Nico Temme to OP-SF Talk, but there was no response.
Editor's Note: A full version of Professor Symeonidis' message with the
identities can be found at
http://www.math.yorku.ca/~muldoon/opsf/sd.pdf

The prize was established in 2002 and first awarded in 2003. It is
awarded every other year by the Society for Industrial and Applied
Mathematics (SIAM) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) in
the area of computational science in recognition of outstanding
contributions to the development and use of mathematical and
computational tools and methods for the solution of science and
engineering problems.
Eligibility
The prize is intended to recognize either one individual or a group of
individuals for outstanding research contributions to the field of
computational science and engineering. The contribution(s) for which
the award is made must be publicly available and may belong to any
aspect of computational science in its broadest sense.
Description of the prize
The award will include a total cash prize of $5,000 and a certificate
containing the citation. SIAM will reimburse reasonable travel expenses
to attend the award ceremony.
Nominations
A letter of nomination, including a description of the contribution(s)
should be sent by July 31, 2004, to:

Topic #8 ----------- OP-SF NET 11.2 ------------- March 15, 2004
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: OP-SF NET Editor
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
poly-request@siam.org.
Back issues can be obtained at the WWW addresses:
http://staff.science.uva.nl/~thk/opsfnet
http://www.math.ohio-state.edu/JAT/DATA/OPSFNET/opsfnet.html
http://math.nist.gov/opsfnet/archive
For several years the Activity Group sponsored a printed Newsletter,
most recently edited by Rafael Yanez. Back issues are accessible at:
http://www.mathematik.uni-kassel.de/~koepf/siam.html
Given the widespread availability of email and the Internet, the need for
the printed Newsletter has decreased. Discussions are underway concerning
whether an annual printed Newsletter or Annual Report should be
instituted.
SIAM has several categories of membership, including low-cost categories
for students and residents of developing countries. For current
information on SIAM and Activity Group membership, contact:

OP-SF NET is a forum of the SIAM Activity Group on
Special Functions and Orthogonal Polynomials.
We disseminate your contributions on anything of interest to the
special functions and orthogonal polynomials community. This
includes announcements of conferences, forthcoming books, new
software, electronic archives, research questions, job openings.
