# Differential Algebra, Complex Analysis and Orthogonal Polynomials

Share this page *Edited by *
*Primitivo B. Acosta-Humánez; Francisco Marcellán*

This volume represents the 2007–2008 Jairo Charris Seminar in
Algebra and Analysis on Differential Algebra, Complex Analysis and
Orthogonal Polynomials, which was held at the Universidad Sergio
Arboleda in Bogotá, Colombia.

It provides the state of the art in the theory of Integrable
Dynamical Systems based on such approaches as Differential Galois
Theory and Lie Groups as well as some recent developments in the
theory of multivariable and \(q\)-orthogonal polynomials, weak
Hilbert's 16th Problem, Singularity Theory, Tournaments in flag
manifolds, and spaces of bounded analytic functions on the unit
circle.

The reader will also find survey presentations, an account of
recent developments, and the exposition of new trends in the areas of
Differential Galois Theory, Integrable Dynamical Systems, Orthogonal
Polynomials and Special Functions, and Bloch–Bergman classes of
analytic functions from a theoretical and an applied perspective.

The contributions present new results and methods, as well as
applications and open problems, to foster interest in research in
these areas.

This book is published in cooperation with Instituto de Matemáticas y sus Aplicaciones (IMA)
