SIAM Activity Group on Orthogonal Polynomials and Special Functions


The purpose of this Activity Group is to promote basic research in orthogonal polynomials and special functions; to further the application of this subject in other parts of mathematics, and in science and industry; and to encourage and support the exchange of information, ideas and techniques between workers in this field, and other mathematicians and scientists.

The Activity Group consists of a broad set of mathematicians, both pure and applied. The Group includes engineers and scientists, students as well as experts. We now have around 150 members scattered about in more than 20 countries. Whatever your specialty might be, we welcome your participation in this classical, and yet modern, topic.

We organize symposia, usually at the Annual SIAM Meetings and we publish an electronic newsletter OP-SF NET six times a year.
