The Banff International Research Station will host the "Bivariate Orthogonal Polynomials and Eigenvalues of Hankel Matrices" workshop in Banff from August 28 to September 4, 2016.

In the 1920's the noble laureate F. Zernike discoverd the Zernike or disc polynomials which was used to expand light waves in large telescopes and powerful microscopes These polynomials are well studied in the field of optics and physics in general. This team will study a general class of polynomials which contains the Zernike polynomials as a model. We expect the new polynomials to be very useful.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
