This workshop is part of the triennial FoCM conference series, organized by the Society for Foundations of Computational Mathematics. The next edition will be held in Barcelona, July 10th-19th, 2017.
This workshop focuses both on basic research and computational aspects of orthogonal polynomials and special functions, as well as on the application of this subject in other parts of mathematics and general science. A partial list of topics is: linear and nonlinear special functions; algebraic and analytic theory of special functions and orthogonal polynomials; connections with integrable systems; Painlevé equations; asymptotic methods; computational and numerical methods; approximation theory; random matrix theory; potential theory.
