Abstract: In the first half of the article, we present two theorems which give, as special cases, a number of new classes of generating functions for the Laguerre polynomial. These formulae extend the recent results of Carlitz [2] and others. The latter part of our work deals with two theorems involving new generating functions for the Hermite and generalized Hermite polynomials, thus generalizing some well-known expansions. The method of proof adopted in this paper differs from that of previous workers.
