Subject: SIGMA, a relatively new math journal
SIGMA is a mathematics journal which was founded in 2005. The acronym
means "Symmetry, Integrability and Geometry: Methods and Applications".
It is an online journal for rapid publication of papers in the following
areas:
* Geometrical methods in mathematical physics
* Lie theory and differential equations
* Integrable and nonintegrable systems, solitons, Painleve analysis
* Dynamical systems and quantum chaos
* Exactly and quasi-exactly solvable models
* Supergroups and nonlinear algebraic structures
* Lie groups and algebras, representation theory and special functions
* q-algebras, quantum groups and noncommutative geometry
* Supersymmetry and supergravity, strings and branes
* Cosmology and quantum gravity
SIGMA is an arXiv overlay journal. It is reviewed by MathSciNet and
Zentralblatt MATH. The managing editor is Anatoly Nikitin (Kiev). The
editorial board includes several people active in orthogonal polynomials
and special functions. For further information see

Topic #7 ----------- OP-SF NET 13.2 ------------ March 15, 2006

From: Tom Koornwinder
Subject: Herman van Rossum
Herman van Rossum, emeritus professor of the University of Amsterdam,
died on February 25, 2006. He was 88 years old. For 20 years Herman van
Rossum was director of the Institute for Propaedeutical Mathematics at
the University of Amsterdam. This institute, emphasizing good teaching
of basic mathematics to students in other sciences, was founded by him.
Later its name was changed to Institute for Interdisciplinary
Mathematics.
Herman van Rossum defended his PhD thesis "A theory of orthogonal
polynomials based on the Pade table" at the University of Utrecht in
1953. Between 1955 and 1995 he published 26 research papers, mostly on
orthogonal polynomials and Pade approximation. Seven of these papers
were joint with Erik Hendriksen, who was inspired by Herman van Rossum
to undertake research in orthogonal polynomials and approximation
theory. See a picture of Herman van Rossum taken in October 2005 at

From: OP-SF NET Editors
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 Editors are Diego Dominici
(dominicd@newpaltz.edu) and Martin Muldoon (muldoon@yorku.ca).
To receive the OP-SF NET, send your name and email address to
poly-request@siam.org.

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:

From: Tom Koornwinder
Subject: SIGMA, a relatively new math journal
SIGMA is a mathematics journal which was founded in 2005. The acronym
means "Symmetry, Integrability and Geometry: Methods and Applications".
It is an online journal for rapid publication of papers in the following
areas:
* Geometrical methods in mathematical physics
* Lie theory and differential equations
* Integrable and nonintegrable systems, solitons, Painleve analysis
* Dynamical systems and quantum chaos
* Exactly and quasi-exactly solvable models
* Supergroups and nonlinear algebraic structures
* Lie groups and algebras, representation theory and special functions
* q-algebras, quantum groups and noncommutative geometry
* Supersymmetry and supergravity, strings and branes
* Cosmology and quantum gravity
SIGMA is an arXiv overlay journal. It is reviewed by MathSciNet and
Zentralblatt MATH. The managing editor is Anatoly Nikitin (Kiev). The
editorial board includes several people active in orthogonal polynomials
and special functions. For further information see

Topic #7 ----------- OP-SF NET 13.2 ------------ March 15, 2006
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: Tom Koornwinder
Subject: Herman van Rossum
Herman van Rossum, emeritus professor of the University of Amsterdam,
died on February 25, 2006. He was 88 years old. For 20 years Herman van
Rossum was director of the Institute for Propaedeutical Mathematics at
the University of Amsterdam. This institute, emphasizing good teaching
of basic mathematics to students in other sciences, was founded by him.
Later its name was changed to Institute for Interdisciplinary
Mathematics.
Herman van Rossum defended his PhD thesis "A theory of orthogonal
polynomials based on the Pade table" at the University of Utrecht in
1953. Between 1955 and 1995 he published 26 research papers, mostly on
orthogonal polynomials and Pade approximation. Seven of these papers
were joint with Erik Hendriksen, who was inspired by Herman van Rossum
to undertake research in orthogonal polynomials and approximation
theory. See a picture of Herman van Rossum taken in October 2005 at

From: OP-SF NET Editors
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 Editors are Diego Dominici
(dominicd@newpaltz.edu) and Martin Muldoon (muldoon@yorku.ca).
To receive the OP-SF NET, send your name and email address to
poly-request@siam.org.

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:
