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:
