engineering. Special function is a term loosely applied to additional functions that arise frequently in applications. We will discuss three of them here: Bessel functions, the gamma function, and Legendre polynomials. 1 Bessel Functions A heat ﬂow problem Bessel functions come up in problems with circular or spherical symmetry.

The construction of expansions in q-Fourier series ([8, 9]) was followed by the derivation of the q-sampling theorems ([2, 5, 14]).The most relevant feature present in all of these q-sampling theorems is the sparsity of their sampling nodes, located at the zeros of the q-analogues of the sin x.

In the book, the author discusses the interplay between Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov type equations, the Bethe ansatz method, representation theory, and geometry of multi-dimensional hypergeometric functions. This book aims to provide an introduction to the area and expose different facets of.

Abstract: This paper is a set of lecture notes of my course "Special functions, KZ type equations, and representation theory" given at MIT during the spring semester of The notes do not contain new results, and are an exposition (mostly without proofs) of various published results in this area, illustrated by the simplest nontrivial by: A standard scheme for a relation between special functions and group representation theory is the following: certain classes of special functions are interpreted as matrix elements of irreducible representations of a certain Lie group, and then properties of special functions are related to (and derived from) simple well-known facts of representation theory.

Special functions are particular mathematical functions that have more or less established names and notations due to their importance in mathematical analysis, functional analysis, geometry, physics, or other applications. The term is defined by consensus, and thus lacks a general formal definition, but the List of mathematical functions contains functions that are commonly accepted as special.

This chapter focuses on symmetry, separation of variables, and special functions. Group theory is a powerful tool that permits derivation of new results and rational classification of old results for functions of hypergeometric type and for all functions obtained through separation of variables. Special functions, which include the trigonometric functions, have been used for centuries.

Their role in the solution of differential equations was exploited by Newton and Leibniz, and the subject of Special Functions functions has been in Special Functions development ever since. In just the past thirty years several new special functions and applications have been discovered.

Speci cally, it was discovered that many of the special functions are (1) speci c matrix elements of matrix representations of Lie groups, and (2) basis functions of operator representations of Lie algebras.

The intended objective of this study is to define and investigate a new class of q-generalized tangent-based Appell polynomials by combining the families of 2-variable q-generalized tangent polynomials and q-Appell investigation includes derivations of generating functions, series definitions, and several important properties and identities of the hybrid q-special polynomials.

In writing this book he had endeavoured to supply some elementary material suitable for the needs of students who are studying the subject for the first time, and also some more advanced work which may be useful to men who are interested more in physical mathematics than in the developments of differential geometry and the theory of functions.

Most of the special functions encountered in physics, engineering, analytic func- tions and probability theory are special cases of hypergeometric functions ([12, 19],[26]-[29]).

equations, moments of inertia and quantum mechanics (cf. [11], [14], [60], [78], [84]). At the heart of the theory of special functions lies the hypergeometric function, in that all of the classical special functions can be expressed in terms of this powerful function.

Hypergeometric functions have explicit series and integral representations. functions commonly called \ special " obey symmetry properties that are best described via group theory (the mathematics of symmetry). In particular, those special functions that arise as explicit solutions of the partial di erential equations of mathematical physics.

An equation is said to be linear if the unknown function and its deriva-tives are linear in F. For example, a(x,y)ux +b(x,y)uy +c(x,y)u = f(x,y), where the functions a, b, c and f are given, is a linear equation of ﬁrst order. An equation is said to be quasilinear if it is linear in the highest deriva-tives.
