This first detailed systematic treatment of orthogonal polynomials continues as a bestseller in the Colloquium Series.

Reviews

"This is the first detailed systematic treatment of ... (a) the asymptotic behaviour of orthogonal polynomials, by various methods, with applications, in particular, to the `classical' polynomials of Legendre, Jacobi, Laguerre and Hermite; (b) a detailed study of expansions in series of orthogonal polynomials, regarding convergence and summability; (c) a detailed study of orthogonal polynomials in the complex domain; (d) a study of the zeros of orthogonal polynomials, particularly of the classical ones, based upon an extension of Sturm's theorem for differential equations. The book presents many new results; many results already known are presented in generalized or more precise form, with new simplified proofs."
