Functional Analysis, Approximation Theory and Numerical Analysis

Matera, Italy, July 5-8, 2022

Session: Special functions and applications

In this session we aim at gathering experts in a large range of aspects of special functions including applications. The topics include e.g. classical special functions such as hypergeometric functions, relations to orthogonal polynomials incl. Painleve equations and Riemann Hilbert problems, asymptotic analysis, approximation theory, q-special functions and connections to combinatorics, and special polynomials and functions used in fractional calculus.
