Special functions by
George E Andrews(
)
21 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This treatise presents an overview of special functions, focusing primarily on hypergeometric functions and the associated hypergeometric series, including Bessel functions and classical orthogonal polynomials. The basic building block of the functions studied in this book is the gamma function. In addition to relatively new work on gamma and beta functions, such as Selberg's multidimensional integrals, a number of important but relatively unknown nineteenth century results are included."BOOK JACKET. "The authors provide organizing ideas, motivation, and historical background for the study and application of some important special functions. This work can serve as a learning tool and lasting reference for students and researchers in special functions, mathematical physics, differential equations, mathematical computing, number theory, and combinatorics."Jacket

Orthogonal polynomials and special functions by
Richard Askey(
Book
)
20 editions published between 1975 and 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally presented as lectures, the theme of this volume is that one studies orthogonal polynomials and special functions not for their own sake, but to be able to use them to solve problems. The author presents problems suggested by the isometric embedding of projective spaces in other projective spaces, by the desire to construct large classes of univalent functions, by applications to quadrature problems, and theorems on the location of zeros of trigonometric polynomials. There are also applications to combinatorial problems, statistics, and physical problems

A derangement problem by
Richard Askey(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Even and Gillis found a closed form solution to a derangement problem of (n sub 1) + ... + (n sub k) objects where (n sub i) objects are of type i. Their solution was an integral of products of Laguerre polynomials. A new derivation is given using MacMahon's master theorem and an asymptotic agrument is given to estimate the size of the number of derangements when (n sub 1 = ... = (n sub k) and k is large. The authors also show how Even and Gillis' integral representation follows easily from Kaplansky's symbolic representation of these numbers
