 This book contains contributions from the proceedings at The Fields Institute workshop on Special Functions, \(q\)Series and Related Topics that was held in June 1995. The articles cover areas from quantum groups and their representations, multivariate special functions, \(q\)series, and symbolic algebra techniques as well as the traditional areas of singlevariable special functions. The book contains both pure and applied topics and reflects recent trends of research in the various areas of special functions. Titles in this series are copublished with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada). Readership Graduate students, research mathematicians, and scientists interested in special functions and its applications. Table of Contents  K.
