The Advanced Study Institute brought together researchers in the main areas of special functions and applications to present recent developments in the theory, review the accomplishments of past decades, and chart directions for future research. Some of the topics covered are orthogonal polynomials and special functions in one and several variables, asymptotic, continued fractions, applications to number theory, combinatorics and mathematical physics, integrable systems, harmonic analysis and quantum groups, Painlevé classification.

The authors give an adelic treatment of the Kuznetsov trace formula as a relative trace formula on $\operatorname{GL}(2)$ over $\mathbf{Q}$. The result is a variant which incorporates a Hecke eigenvalue in addition to two Fourier coefficients on the spectral side. The authors include a proof of a Weil bound for the generalized twisted Kloosterman sums which arise on the geometric side. As an application, they show that the Hecke eigenvalues of Maass forms at a fixed prime, when weighted as in the Kuznetsov formula, become equidistributed relative to the Sato-Tate measure in the limit as the level goes to infinity.

This book, in honor of Hari M. Srivastava, discusses essential developments in mathematical research in a variety of problems. It contains thirty-five articles, written by eminent scientists from the international mathematical community, including both research and survey works. Subjects covered include analytic number theory, combinatorics, special sequences of numbers and polynomials, analytic inequalities and applications, approximation of functions and quadratures, orthogonality and special and complex functions. The mathematical results and open problems discussed in this book are presented in a simple and self-contained manner. The book contains an overview of old and new results, methods, and theories toward the solution of longstanding problems in a wide scientific field, as well as new results in rapidly progressing areas of research. The book will be useful for researchers and graduate students in the fields of mathematics, physics and other computational and applied sciences.

The Encyclopedia of Mathematical Physics provides a complete resource for researchers, students and lecturers with an interest in mathematical physics. It enables readers to access basic information on topics peripheral to their own areas, to provide a repository of the core information in the area that can be used to refresh the researcher's own memory banks, and aid teachers in directing students to entries relevant to their course-work. The Encyclopedia does contain information that has been distilled, organised and presented as a complete reference tool to the user and a landmark to the body of knowledge that has accumulated in this domain. It also is a stimulus for new researchers working in mathematical physics or in areas using the methods originated from work in mathematical physics by providing them with focused high quality background information. * First comprehensive interdisciplinary coverage * Mathematical Physics explained to stimulate new developments and foster new applications of its methods to other fields * Written by an international group of experts * Contains several undergraduate-level introductory articles to facilitate acquisition of new expertise * Thematic index and extensive cross-referencing to provide easy access and quick search functionality * Also available online with active linking.

Advances in Inequalities for Special Functions

This book is the first in a collection of research monographs that are devoted to presenting recent research, development and use of Mathematical Inequalities for Special Functions. All the papers incorporated in the book have peen peer-reviewed and cover a range of topics that include both survey material of previously published works as well as new results. In his presentation on special functions approximations and bounds via integral representation, Pietro Cerone utilises the classical Stevensen inequality and bounds for the Ceby sev functional to obtain bounds for some classical special functions. The methodology relies on determining bounds on integrals of products of functions. The techniques are used to obtain novel and useful bounds for the Bessel function of the first kind, the Beta function, the Zeta function and Mathieu series.
