Classical orthogonal polynomials constitute a very important and interesting family of special functions. They are mathematical objects which have attracted attention not only because of their mathematical value but also because of their connections with physical problems.

I am going to show some basics of the discrete classical polynomials sequences and some ideas about how to characterize them.

Speaker Bio: Roberto Costas-Santos was born in Seville, Spain where he studied Mathematics. He obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics and received a fellowship from the University Carlos III de Madrid. In 2007, he worked as visiting professor in the Department of Mathematics at the College of William and Mary and then worked in a 2 year postdoc at the University of California Santa Barbara. In 2010, he returned to Spain is now working as an Interim Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Mathematics at the Universidad de Alcala in Madrid.
