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 single-variable 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 co-published with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).


Graduate students, research mathematicians, and scientists interested in special functions and its applications.
