About the Authors
  • This is the first modern book on orthogonal polynomials of several variables, which are valuable tools used in multivariate analysis, including approximations and numerical integration. The book presents the theory in elegant form and with modern concepts and notation. It introduces the general theory and emphasizes the classical types of orthogonal polynomials whose weight functions are supported on standard domains such as the cube, the simplex, the sphere and the ball. It also focuses on those of Gaussian type, for which fairly explicit formulae exist. The authors' approach blends classical analysis and symmetry-group-theoretic methods. The book will be welcomed by research mathematicians and applied scientists, including applied mathematicians, physicists, chemists and engineers.

    • First modern book on subject, with many results drawn from recent literature
    • Can be used both as an introduction or as a reference, useful to a wide audience
    • Incorporates classical and modern approaches

    "This book is the first modern treatment of orthogonal polynomials of several real variables. It presents not only a general theory, but also detailed results of recent research on generalizations of various classical cases." Mathematical Reviews
