Topic #1 ---------- OP-SF NET 14.1 ---------- January 15, 2007
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: OP-SF NET Editors
Subject: OP-SF NET format and delivery
Since its inception the version of OP-SF NET mailed to subscribers
has been in a simple text format. This had the advantage of small
file-size and no special software being needed by readers.
With the passage of time these desiderata have become less crucial and
we have begun to discuss alternate formats and modes of delivery.
The present issue is being sent in two formats, the usual text-only
format within the body of an email and a .htm version as an attachment.
Comments on this change and further suggestions will be welcomed by the
editors.
Topic #2 ---------- OP-SF NET 14.1 ---------- January 15, 2007
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: OP-SF NET Editors
Subject: Lee Lorch gets major MAA award
Lee Lorch, Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at York University, received
the Mathematical Association of America's "Yueh-Gin Gung and Dr. Charles
Y. Hu Distinguished Service to Mathematics Award" on January 6, 2007
during the Joint Mathematics Meetings in New Orleans. This award is the
most prestigious award for service offered by the Association. It honors
distinguished contributions to mathematics and mathematical education - in
one particular aspect or many, and in a short period or over a career.
Lee Lorch's mathematical research has been in the areas of analysis,
differential equations, and special functions. In the Award citation, he
was described as a remarkable teacher of mathematics and an inspiration to
his students and as a vocal advocate and energetic worker
for human rights and educational opportunities for women and minorities.
In accepting the award, Lee wrote: "While this award honors me, it gives
me even greater satisfaction that, by making it, the MAA emphasizes its
support for equity." But he also noted that "this fight is far from over"
pointing to the plight of Katrina and post-Katrina New Orleans.

Topic #3 ---------- OP-SF NET 14.1 ---------- January 15, 2007
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From: OP-SF NET Editors
Subject: Preprints in arXiv.org
The following preprints related to the fields of orthogonal polynomials
and special functions were posted or cross-listed to one of the
subcategories of arXiv.org during recent months.
The items from September and October 2006 were inadvertently
omitted from the original mailing of our November 15, 2006 issue
but were added to some of the later issues.
Hence we give here four months worth of items.
We begin with November and December 2006 and follow these with those for

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).

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
