Workshop on "Exceptional Orthogonal Polynomials and Exact Solutions in Mathematical Physics"

Month: September 2014

Date: September 7--12

Name: Workshop on "Exceptional Orthogonal Polynomials and Exact Solutions in Mathematical Physics"

Location: Segovia, Spain.


Exceptional orthogonal polynomials are dense families of Sturm-Liouville orthogonal polynomials with gaps in their degree sequence. They appear as eigenfunctions of rational extensions of exactly solvable potentials in quantum mechanics, and they are related to Darboux transformations and bispectrality in the theory of integrable systems. The past five years have seen a considerable activity in this field and we feel the time is ripe for bringing together many of the scientists who have contributed to this development, and others who might be interested in them.
