Orthogonal and Multiple Orthogonal Polynomials (15w5022)

In recent years, asymptotics and spectral theory of orthogonal and multiple orthogonal polynomials have been used to study random matrices, combinatorial questions, statistical models, Toda lattices, discrete Schrodinger operators and weighted approximation. The real and complex techniques that underlie some of these asymptotics have been undergoing rapid development. The problems within the focus of the conference are widely applied, highly regarded, and very active areas of research. The conference is timely, and will have a different focus from any other that we know of.
