Orthogonal polynomials and integral transforms

Ana F. Loureiro

University of Kent, U.K.   -

In this talk I will explain how operating with certain integral transforms over polynomial sequences is a useful tool to obtain and deduce properties of one sequence based on the other. A special attention will be given to certain $d$-orthogonal polynomial sequences, which basically are polynomial sequences satisfying a recurrence relation of order $d+1$. When $d=1$, we recover the orthogonal case. Examples of some known polynomial sequences with a plank of applications will be used to illustrate the usefulness of the technique. Among the targeted sequences, some semiclassical polynomials will arise.
