    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, .

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 has been in continuous development ever since. In just the past thirty years several new special functions and applications have been discovered.

a relationship between group theory and representation and Representation Theory book with the theory of special functions. 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.

By viewing the special func. amazing book Special Functions and the Theory of Group Representations by in; later chapters in this book use the representation theory of other physically signi cant Lie groups (the Lorentz group, the group of Euclidean motions, etc.) to explain a vast array of properties of many special functions of mathematical physics.

diate step, Strum-Liouville theory is used to study the most common orthogonal functions needed to separate variables in Cartesian, cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems. Boun-dary valued problems are then studied in detail, and integral transforms are discussed, including the study of Green functions and propagators.

independent solutions of the equation in inverse powers of L. We add two initial condi-tions to the differential equation and consider the corresponding initial value problem. By using the Green’s function of an auxiliary problem and a fixed point theorem, we construct a sequence of functions that converges to the unique solution of the problem.

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.

For equations of especially high symmetry, e. g., the Laplace, wave, heat, and free-particle Schrodinger equations, the elements of g belong to the enveloping algebra of & and the problem of relating s e p arated solutions of (t) becomes a special c a s e of the representation theory.

In mathematics, the Gaussian or ordinary hypergeometric function 2 F 1 (a,b;c;z) is a special function represented by the hypergeometric series, that includes many other special functions as specific or limiting is a solution of a second-order linear ordinary differential equation (ODE).

Every second-order linear ODE with three regular singular points can be transformed into this. The Lie group and representation theory approach to special functions, and how they solve the ODEs arising in physics is absolutely amazing. I've given an example of its power below on Bessel's equation.
