The term elliptic polynomials refers to the polynomials generated by o dd elliptic integrals and elliptic functions. In studying these, the a uthors consider such things as orthogonality and the construction of w eight functions and measures, finding structure constants and interest ing inequalities, and deriving useful formulas and evaluations. Althou gh some of the material may be familiar, it establishes a new mathemat ical field that intersects with classical subjects at many points. Its wealth of information on important properties of polynomials and clea r, accessible presentation make Elliptic Polynomials valuable to those in real and complex analysis, number theory, and combinatorics, and w ill undoubtedly generate further research.

Editorial Reviews

This book explores the interplay between the fields of elliptic functions and orthogonal polynomials, considering such topics as orthogonality and the construction of weight functions and measures, finding structure constants, and deriving useful formulas and evaluations. It also provides new material about Jacobi elliptic functions through the use of Maclaurin series divisibility, and introduces a new class of polynomials, "moment polynomials", which give the moments of orthogonal sequences. Lomont and Brillhart (both U. of Arizona, Tucson) have written this text for people involved in real and complex analysis, number theory and combinatorics. Annotation c.
