Subject: Workshop Proceedings on "Special Functions, q-Series and Related Topics"

The proceedings volume for the 1995 Toronto Workshop on "Special Functions, q-Series and Related Topics" has now appeared. The following information is taken from the AMS Web Page.

"Special Functions, q-Series and Related Topics" Edited by: Mourad E. H. Ismail (University of South Florida), David R. Masson (University of Toronto) and Mizan Rahman (Carleton University).

This book contains contributions from the proceedings at The Fields Institute workshop on Special Functions, q-Series and Related Topics that was held in June 1995. The articles cover areas from quantum groups and their representations, multivariate special functions, q-series, and symbolic algebra techniques as well as the traditional areas of single-variable special functions. The book contains both pure and applied topics and reflects recent trends of research in the various areas of special functions.
