A publication of the Mathematical Society of Japan

To celebrate Masatoshi Noumi's 60th birthday, the
international conference “Representation Theory, Special
Functions and Painlevé Equations” was held at the
Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Kyoto University, from
March 3–March 6, 2015.

This volume is the proceedings of the conference. It contains 15
papers covering a variety of topics in the research fields where Noumi
has made many significant contributions over the years—
representation theory, special functions, Painlevé equations,
among others. The editors hope that readers interested in those
subjects will find exciting and stimulating insights from the
excellent papers in this volume.

Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.

Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years post-publication.
